Continuously we are now bombarded by the commercials of the various mobile operators that advertise rates, with connection via optical fiber, in this quick guide we will try to give an answer to the most common questions that we receive, while providing users with all the basics to better understand the market of the connections that change.
The Fiber in fact is, undeniably, a revolution and a great occasion, and the Open Fiber advances (in many have had to do with the shipyards in the streets of their cities).
