Tiscali has announced plans to build its UK operations by increasing the number of unbundled (LLU) sites from the present 800 to 1,000 in 2008 and 1,100 by 2009. The expanded service would represent in the region of 17 million lines. 740 sites have been enabled for Tiscali’s IPTV service, the relaunched HomeChoice, which has fallen back to 36,000 homes after delays in expanding its footprint.
In Italy, an uubundling agreement with Telecom Italia means its IPTV offer will be launched from 1,000 LLU sites in 2008.
The UK operations, which were once thought to be for sale, are now likely to be the subject of a listing on the London market.
