The ultra-wideband provides connections with a speed exceeding 20/30 Mbps. As set out by the Digital Agenda for Europe, at least 30Mbps must be made available to everyone and at least 100Mbps must be used by 50% of the population by 2020. Today, in Italy, 10 industrial districts out of 90 lack second generation broadband services and 11% of businesses do not have access to ADSL.
This is why it is increasingly important to meet the requirements for growth comping from companies in those Italian industrial areas that are yet to be provided with broadband and ultra-wideband services. In order to meet the need to access to innovation coming from companies, Infracom started a specific journey to reduce the digital divide in those areas.
This journey goes hand in hand with the project to extend Infracom’s data centers, which became three in 2015 thanks to the opening of the new data center in Milan Assago. 2,400 square meters in total, 1,900 of which dedicated to data centers, connected with the others in Milan Caldera and Verona via proprietary optical fiber redundant and protected circuits.
