Enel says agrees with govt on need to complete cabling of Italy rapidly

MILAN, Aug 6 (Reuters) - Enel said on Thursday it agreed with the government on the need to rapidly complete the cabling of Italy with fiber and backed any move that speeded up the process based on wholesale-only open access for all parties.

"The company entirely agrees with the government on this objective," it said in emailed comments.

Italy’s biggest utility said it had received unsolicited offers for its stake in fiber network company Open Fiber from investment funds but added no sale process has been initiated.

Enel was replying to a request for comments to a Reuters story saying it was considering selling its 50% stake in Open Fiber which it jointly controls with state-lender CDP. (Reporting by Stephen Jewkes, editing by Maria Pia Quaglia)
