Thursday 27 February 2020 | 10:27 CET | News
Italian operator Fastweb is currently testing around 20 automatic SIM card dispensing machines in various locations throughout the country, according to unnamed sources cited by Mondo Mobile Web. The distribution machines – dubbed 'Fastbox' – are similar to Iliad's 'Simbox' machines and allow consumers to quickly request portability and acquire a Fastweb SIM card by means of a valid identity document, credit card or IBAN number, all confirmed by the recording of a video for each individual user.
