    Europe will pick up digital devide sooner than we think - Italy to invest

    Italy is preparing to launch a series of public and private tenders, worth around EUR 900 million (of which EUR 237 million private) aimed at overcoming the digital divide and promoting the development of ultra-wideband. In many regions, including Basilicata, Calabria, Campania and Sicily, only 40 percent of the population has access to the network at speeds between 30 and 100 Mbps, while too often the connection is so slow as to prevent the proper use of sites and services. Giving the green light to the procedures for the allocation of funds, which will begin in March, is a note issued February 15 by the Ministry of Economic Development and Territorial Cohesion. The tenders should bring high speed internet to 2.8 million citizens who still connect via the telephone line, while another 4 million will be eligible for the ultra-wideband (in 180 municipalities in the South). The project was approved by the European Commission and also takes advantage of resources allocated by Brussels for the period 2014-2020
