Liezen Fibre, Austria


Meridiam has closed the Project Agreement for the development of a fibre network of up to 58,264 homes in the region of Liezen, Austria. The region of Liezen comprises 29 local communities with a total population of c. 80.000. To secure the Project Meridiam leveraged existing fibre project in Montabaur, Germany and has an ambitious strategy to invest in projects that help tackle the digital divide.

Meridiam will take a 90% shareholding in the Project Company (RML Infrastruktur GmbH), that has already been founded by the public regional management company (RML), to build and operate the Fibre to the Home/Building (FTTH/B) network. RML will retain a 10% shareholding.

Meridiam intends to partner with Energie Steiermark as the preferred active network operator. Energie Steiermark is the regional energy provider and already has 11 Internet Service Providers on its operating platform.
