Treviso has been included by Telecom Italia in the new national cabling plan in FTTH (Fibre To The Home) technology, communicated to the Ministry of Economic Development, which plans to cover 100 cities by March 2018
The new network will allow super-fast connections from 100 Megabits per second, and potentially up to 1 Giga to ensure even higher quality in the use of HD video content. The first districts will be connected by the end of the year 
Thanks to this initiative, the city will be equipped with an even more performing fibre optic network than the one that Telecom Italia already provides to citizens and businesses, thus projecting Treviso in the elite of Italian cities equipped with ultra-modern telephone infrastructure  

Telecom Italia relaunches with ultra-broadband in Treviso and announces today, for the first time in Italy, an innovative plan that brings fibre optic to homes, allowing super-fast connections from 100 Megabits per second and potentially up to 1 Giga (1,000 Megabits) with the aim of guaranteeing even higher quality in the use of HD video content and a better browsing experience. The first city districts will already be connected by the end of the year.

In fact, Treviso is part of the new national cabling plan in FTTH (Fibre To The Home) technology, recently communicated to the Ministry of Economic Development through Infratel, which plans to reach 100 cities by March 2018. The initiative will therefore allow providing the city with an even more powerful fibre optic network than the one that Telecom Italia already provides to citizens and businesses (fibre connections to road cabinets that reach a total of 30 thousand property units, equal to over 80% of the population), thus projecting Treviso in the elite of Italian cities with ultra-modern telephone infrastructure. 

With the adoption of the new infrastructure development program of the fibre optic network in the country using the FTTH network architecture, with which the laying of the fibre goes beyond road cabinets directly reaching homes and offices, Telecom Italia aims to give further impetus to the country's digitization processes and facilitate the achievement of the objectives set by the Digital Agenda. This action is thus in addition to the national development plan, which already sees Telecom Italia committed in the realization of the NGAN (Next Generation Access Network) in FTTCab (Fibre to the Cabinet) technology, with the goal of reaching 75% of the population by 2017

Existing infrastructure will be used to lay the fibre optic cables and, in case of excavations, innovative low environmental impact equipment and techniques will be used that reduce work time, work site area, ground broken, material removed, paving  impairment and consequently road repairs to a minimum.

By creating increasingly advanced ultrabroadband infrastructure, Telecom Italia has confirmed its commitment to innovating at local level and disseminating the services enabled by these solutions, thus contributing to the sustainable growth of the local economy and to improving quality of life for citizens.
