A unique and free opportunity for all condominiums
To give each occupant the chance to benefit from the added value and functional advantages offered by connection to the new fiber-optic network, Open Fiber needs to access the building to check its suitability to the characteristics of the new system and proceed with subsequent installation operations.
The activities planned in a condominium – naturally respecting the needs of occupants and with an effort to minimise any inconvenience – are as follows:
- Feasibility survey; identification of the best system solution (to be implemented with the least possible impact to the building by reusing existing internal and external structures);
- Creation of the system.
- Reinstatement of the spaces affected by construction to the clear and clean state they were found in.
Open Fiber’s Optical Fiber System
- does not need electrical power and does not have electromagnetic emissions;
- is exclusively for condominium use;
- is free and does not involve any cost to the condominium itself, for the installation phase or the later maintenance phase.
For all planned operations, Open Fiber uses specialised companies, whose staff will be recognisable by appropriate identification badges.
All operations will be carried out to perfection; and in case of any damages, they will be repaired immediately by the same company that carried out the work. The same company is also responsible for returning spaces affected by the construction to the clear and clean state they were found in.
THE REGULATORY CONTEXT
(Legislative Decree n. 259/2003 “Electronic Communications Code”, art. 91; d.l. 25 June 2008, n. 112 conv. in l. n. 133/2008; d.lgs. n. 33/2016 “Fiber Decree”):
- The law provides the operator with the right to access the inside of buildings for the works necessary for the installation of optical fiber systems;
- The communications operator, during the development phase of the optical fiber network, also through the reuse of existing infrastructure, can have access to spaces for construction in order to install, connect and maintain the optical fiber system, also in the case of uninhabited or newly constructed buildings;
- Access to the building does not require a condominium decision.
