Italian operator Fastweb has announced that its 1Gbps fibre-optic broadband service will cover the whole of Milan by summer. The service, dubbed 'Fastweb UltraFibra', was launched in the Garibaldi area of Milan in December and will be expanded to 50 percent of all households and offices in the city by April, before covering the entire city in time for the summer months. The service also comes with the operator's new FastGate configurable router as well as free access to the 'Wow Fi' community-based Wi-Fi service, with nearly 100,000 hotspots available throughout Milan.
