Wind Tre is ready, the first mobile operator in Italy
Maximo Ibarra leads the company
Rome, January 2, 2017 – From 31st December 2016, Wind Tre, the biggest national reality in mobile telephony with over 31 million customers and 2.7 million customers in the fixed line, became operative.
The new entity, born from the merger of the operating companies H3G S.p.A. and Wind Telecomunicazioni S.p.A. following the 50/50 joint venture created by CK Hutchison and VimpelCom, is led by Maximo Ibarra. Wind Tre will achieve important synergies and invest, in the next years, 7 billion Euros in digital infrastructures. The new financial and industrial assets will allow Wind Tre to provide innovative services, with improved quality and network speed, in line with the growing connectivity needs and with the consumption expectations of families and enterprises. The company aims to become a reference player in fixed-mobile convergence and next-generation fibre network development, thanks also to the partnership with Enel Open Fiber for the ultra-broadband network development in Italy.
According to Wind Tre CEO Maximo Ibarra: “this is the beginning of a major challenge for the market and an important development stage for the digital economy in our country. We aim to be leader in the customer’s relation thanks to our infrastructure’s quality, to the transparency of our offers and to the passion of our people.”
