Digitalisation of Italy
Technological and service innovation
Development and spreading of digital skills

From the very beginning Fastweb has been investing in the digitalisation of Italy.

This means not only investing in the spreading of next generation infrastructure but also working to promote use of the Internet and digital enablement in order to make new business opportunities possible. We are convinced that digitalisation will be a driving force for growth in Italy.

Fastweb has a fibre optic network infrastructure that is over 45,000 kilometres long. In seven cities it already offers connectivity of up to one Giga, in 73 cities connectivity of 200 Mbps and in 46 cities of 100 Mbps
Fastweb offers 4G over 97% of Italian territory. To use the Internet away from home and not use up their Gigabytes of traffic, Fastweb customers can use WOW FI, which is already active in 800 Italian cities
Between October 2016 and June 2017, Fastweb Digital Academy organised 37 specialisation courses for digital jobs. Almost 1000 students have already successfully completed the courses

Development of the FTTCab network and FTTH 2017-2020

In 2016 Fastweb approved an investment plan that involves an upgrade of network performance with FTTCab technology up to 200 Megabits per second and FTTH up to 1 Gbps, with a target of reaching 50% of the population by 2020.

Full MVNO and WOW FI

Fastweb is a Full Mobile Virtual Network Operator and offers 4G services in 7,700 municipalities and up to 300 Megabits per second in downloads in more than 900 municipalities. For customers who connect when they are away from home, Fastweb has launched WOW FI, an innovative widespread Wi-Fi solution, in which each modem becomes an Internet access point at the disposal of the customer community.

Fastweb Digital Academy

To spread digital culture and bring young people closer to digital jobs, Fastweb has created a school in Milan together with Fondazione Cariplo. As part of Cariplo Factory, the great hub of open innovation that brings together the potential of non-profit and for-profit companies and aims to create 10,000 job opportunities over three years, Fastweb Digital Academy wants to speed up the meeting between young people and the world of work training 1,000 young people each year. Fastweb Digital Academy offers youths and adults specialised training courses, with an informal, experiential format. Read More


In order to promote innovation among school classes, Fastweb with Ministry of Education University and Research, launched Fastweb4School. The goal of this initiative is to stimulate the realization of digital projects in Secondary Schools and to contribute to the growth of digital skills among students. For every School Institute that will collect at least 50% of money through crowdfunding for their initiative, Fastweb will provide the remaining 50% up to maximum of 10.000 euros for each initiative. Funding is non-repayable and ownership of the realization of the idea will remain to educational institution that proposed it. Read More
