Monday 27 July 2015 | 09:45 CET | News
Italian broadband operator Fastweb has officially launched its 'Wow Fi' social Wi-Fi service in the cities of Bari and Legnano. Customers will now be able to browse at broadband speeds by accessing around 16,000 hotspots in Bari and 3,000 in Legnano. The operator launched 'Wow Fi' in Livorno and Monza at the end of last year, describing it as the first social Wi-Fi service in Italy to be based on fibre optic technology. The service is completely free to Fastweb customers and comes with a one-off authentication process developed to guarantee the ease of use and security of the connection.
