The new joint venture will roll out 910,000 new fiber connections in underserved areas, targeting 685,000 households in medium-dense areas and 225,000 businesses.

APG will pay €440 million ($520 million) for a 50 percent stake in the joint venture, which will be split in an initial payment of €220 million ($260 million), and another €220 million ($260 million) to be paid in annual installments based on the rollout progress.
