It should be recalled that in 2009, following the reduction of the shares held by the industrial partner Infracom, were consolidated by the Group the Acantho S.p.A. and Satcom S.p.A., which operated in the telecommunications sector, with a contribution to the result that more than offset the decrease due to some minor services abandoned in 2008. The companies concerned operate a total of about 3,200 km of optical fibre and serve more than 7,000 customers.

As for the service of public lighting, despite the reduction of three municipalities upon contract expiration, the number of points of light managed has increased by 1.4%.
