Italian operator Fastweb has teamed up with Azienda Trasporti Milanesi (ATM), the public transport provider for the northern Italian city, to launch a Wi-Fi trial in the main Duomo underground station. Travellers can already try out the service, accessing internet on the go at speeds of up to 500Mbps for a maximum of four hours a day at the Line 1 and Line 3 halls and platforms. Under the terms of its contract with ATM, the operator has installed a 4Gbps fibre-optic network plus 40 access points, each of which allows up to 256 users to be connected at the same time.
