Fastweb brings social Wi-Fi service to Turin

Monday 14 March 2016 | 15:37 CET | News
Italian broadband operator Fastweb has launched its 'Wow Fi' community-based Wi-Fi service in Turin, allowing customers in the city to browse at broadband speeds while on the move. The company said users in the northern Italian city will be able to access around 40,000 hotspots made available by Fastweb customers, who agree to provide a small portion of their signal so that other customers in the area can access the internet without using up data traffic. 'Wow Fi' is already available in around 50 cities throughout the country, with Fastweb planning to extend the service to all other cities
