Tessellis, the new Industrial Group resulting from the merger between Linkem Retail and Tiscali S.p.A., leader in the telecommunications sector, is a Smart Telco with one of the largest Fibre coverage available in Italy.

Tessellis’ challenge, which conceptually recalls the notion of mosaic in Latin, is to configure itself as a technological enabler, capable of combining its assets into an ecosystem built to generate value and innovation. Tessellis is the product of an innovative mindset rooted in the belief that a focus on the consumer business in the telecommunications market is no longer sufficient and that the future lies in value-added services.

The current positioning will therefore be strengthened by an integrated offer of fixed and mobile services for households and businesses, capable of enhancing all the Group’s assets, from the portal to the ecosystem of innovative start-ups in the digital world.

As of today, Tessellis has 1145 direct employees, 60 percent of whom are women, 90 percent are employed in southern Italy, and about half are based in Sardinia at the Sa Illetta headquarters in Cagliari.

The new industrial group includes among its business areas that of Tiscali Italia, a national operator among the first in the ultrabroadband segment, in the most innovative and promising technologies: FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) and FTTH (Fiber To The Home).

The integration project between Tiscali S.p.A. and Linkem Retail aims to offer fair and neutral access to the network, supporting the development of strategic verticals and private networks, opening up to non-telco customers, small and medium-sized enterprises, universities, central and local public administrations with the goal of accelerating the country’s digital transformation.
