August 23, 2022
Virgin Fibra has launched in Italy, with the goal of offering simplicity, transparency, and a pure fibre connection.
In collaboration with telco Open Fiber, Virgin Fibra was created to give more Italians great connectivity in a really simple way, with access to fast and reliable pure fibre.
The fibre to the home network in Italy is expanding rapidly – with 26 million homes expected to be able to access pure fibre by 2027.
Tom Mockridge, CEO of Virgin Fibra, said: “I am thrilled that so many Italian investors have decided to join me and the Virgin Group to help innovate in the Italian broadband market. Virgin Fibra will help to accelerate the take-up of pure fibre, offering high performance, simplicity and transparency. I’m delighted that Virgin Fibra is now open for business, offering the outstanding customer service Virgin is renowned for.”
Josh Bayliss, CEO of the Virgin Group, added: “Italy is an incredibly important market for Virgin, and we are delighted to welcome Virgin Fibra to the family. Virgin has a long history in telecommunications currently serving 11 other international markets. Tom and his team are building an inclusive business, connecting people and families across Italy with passion and purpose. I’m delighted that Virgin Fibra will join Virgin Active, Virgin Radio and Virgin Voyages in bringing great service and innovation to our customers in Italy.”
