Orange has signed an agreement with Open Fiber and in the coming months will launch its offers aimed at Italian businesses
While waiting for Sky's debut in the Italian fixed telephony market scheduled for June 16, news arrives of a new operator that is ready to launch its offers and services: it is the French Orange that has just announced to have closed an agreement with Open Fiber, the company participated by Enel and Cassa Depositi e Prestiti and that is wiring the entire country with a super fast fiber network.
It is necessary to make some clarifications. Orange arrives in Italy not as an operator for home telephony, but as an operator mainly addressed to enterprises, big and small. In fact, in Italy will be present with Orange business services, the rib of the French company specialized in services to companies. Thanks to the agreement with Open Fiber, Orange will be able to offer a fiber optic network (FTTH) that ensures super speed and cloud services that simplify the life of companies by starting a process of digitalization now necessary.
The offers of Orange
For the moment Orange business services has not announced the rates with which it will debut on the Italian market. Surely they will be structured offers on various levels and based on the single company and they will not provide only the internet connection. The goal of the French company, in fact, is to offer Italian companies, especially SMEs, a complete package including super-fast connection and innovative services such as platforms for the cloud, programs for data analysis and data management and finally for the management of IoT devices.
Italian industry, in fact, suffers a major gap on the theme of digitalization. There are still few companies that invest in this field, which has now become of fundamental importance to grow also in the international field.
When Orange arrives in Italy
There is still no official date for the launch of the first Orange offers on the Italian market. After the closure of the agreement, the French operator can focus on the last details to arrive prepared and launch offers designed on the needs of Italian companies.
