With 2.7 million wireline customers and 1.9 million mobile customers, Fastweb has developed a national fiber optic network infrastructure of 50,500 kilometers with over 4 million kilometers of fiber reaching 22 million customers, 8 million of which are through a proprietary network with connection speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second.
