FiberCop has partnered Netoip to enable fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) to be developed as part of the FiberCop network co-investment project.

Under the terms of the agreement, Netoip will use the fibre-optic secondary access network to FiberCop's homes to develop the FTTH access market in 9 municipalities in Marche and in other municipalities in the regions of Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia, across Italy.

Netoip joining the co-investment offer, which the TIM Group is implementing through FiberCop – follows other operators who have done the same, including AfinnaOne, Connectivia and Iliad.

FiberCop’s investment plan aims to reach FTTH coverage of 75% of the country’s grey and black areas by 2025.

FiberCop's co-investment model, which allows all interested operators to participate in the deployment of optical fibre in Italy in an infrastructure competition framework, accelerates fibre deployment across the country and allows premises to choose ultrabroadband connections with speeds of over 1Gbps.

FiberCop is owned by TIM (58%) together with KKR Infrastructure (37.5%) and Fastweb (4.5%) and has a network that offers over 94% of the population UBB connections thanks to FTTC and FTTH connections.
