FiberCop and Springo sign co-investment agreement to speed up fibre roll-out in the country

12/27/2021 - 11:11 AM

TIM Group infrastructure operator FiberCop and Springo, an internet provider operating in the North-East of Italy, signed an agreement that will allow the Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) access market to be developed through Springo’s involvement in the FiberCop network co-investment project.

On the basis of this agreement, Springo will use the fibre optic secondary access network up to FiberCop's homes to develop the Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) access market in the municipalities of Belluno, Conegliano, Montebelluna, Feltre and Cortina d'Ampezzo. Thanks to the subsidiary company Ultra Fiber, of which Springo is the infrastructure operator, the agreement will be extended to other municipalities throughout Italy.

Springo's adhesion to the co-investment offer - which the TIM Group carries out through FiberCop - is the first one in the entire Northern Italian territory for the positioning range of TLC providers operating in local areas and follows that of other important operators, confirming the soundness of FiberCop’s investment plan which will ensure FTTH coverage for 75% of the country's grey and black areas by 2025.

The agreement reached confirms the effectiveness of the co-investment model, which allows all interested operators to participate in the deployment of optical fibre in Italy in an infrastructure competition framework. Moreover, it speeds up the process of overcoming the digital divide in the country and allows households and businesses to choose ultrabroadband connections with speeds of over 1 Gigabit per second.




FiberCop is the infrastructure company controlled by TIM (58%) together with KKR Infrastructure (37.5%) and Fastweb (4.5%) which aims to digitise the country by deploying Fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) optical fibre connections.

FiberCop operates on the basis of a co-investment model and is the first case in Europe to see the new European Electronic Communications Code applied at national scale.

The company provides operators with fibre optic passive access services, operating with maximum efficiency and protecting people and the environment.

FiberCop has a network asset that already offers over 94% of the population UBB connections thanks to FTTC and FTTH connections and will continue to develop FTTH coverage with a connection speed of over 1 Gigabit. The aim is to achieve 75% coverage of households in the country’s grey and black areas by 2025.

FiberCop aims to make a critical contribution to reducing the digital divide in Italy, speeding up the process of customers switching from copper to fibre.



Springo is an independent company, selling fiber optic connection through a network based on Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH), Fiber-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) and Fixed-Wireless-Access (FWA) technologies.

Actually, Springo owns the largest and widespread WI-FI distribution network in the whole province of Belluno. The company also offers clouding, housing and ITC solutions.

Springo is officially accredited to the Italian Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) for any TLC service, it is registered at the ROC (Italian Register of  telecoms operators – no. 32446), it is an official ISP (internet Service Provider)and it is partner of RIPE, counting on several sub-nets for Static IP addresses.

Springo, by way of the company Ultra Fiber, aims to extend its internet services all over Italy.

The brand “Springo” has origin in a dialectal term, commonly used in the local area, which clearly explains the services features and the staff mood (speed, vitality, promptness).
