EXA Infrastructure announced that FibreConnect has chosen EXA to build its backbone across Italy to connect key industrial locations and data centers.
FibreConnect is an independent operator that provides "Wholesale Only" services to ISPs operating in the Industrial and Artisanal Areas (AIAs) spread across the Italian territory, with the aim of driving innovation via ultra-broadband connections.
“We recognized the gap in the market for this important fiber optic connectivity and EXA Infrastructure was the leading partner of choice to ensure we could build a strategic and robust backbone that connects Rome to Milan,” Renzo Ravaglia, Chief Executive of FibreConnect said. “We have successfully built network branches to provide our ISP partners with dedicated ultra-broadband connection services in industrial areas that are not covered by traditional operators.”
FibreConnect launched in 2022, investing in EXA’s fiber infrastructure to deliver transmissions speeds up to 10 Tbps. “The strategic partnership aims to deliver on FibreConnect’s ambition to reach 1000 AIA and 250,000 companies,” Ravaglia added.
“EXA Infrastructure is committed to supporting the needs and growth plans of our customers, not only for today but to create opportunities that enable innovation for the future,” said Nicholas Collins, Chief Commercial Officer at EXA Infrastructure. “Our role in supporting FibreConnect to serve its customers across Italy is something we are incredibly proud of, and we will continue to build on this through our future network investments.”
