The Italian Minister of Telecommunications Mario Landolfi has announced the launch of Wi-max («Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access») starting next July. Wi-max will be available for an initial 6 month period on an experimental basis, in a limited number of regions, and selected cities (Piemonte, Sardegna, Siciliy, Valle d’Aosta and Abruzzo, the cities of Rome, Milan, Arezzo and Parma).
Wi-max represents an excellent opportunity to leapfrog towards a networked society, especially for the rural areas where broadband internet access is rarely available.
