Italy's Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) announced that state-owned infrastructure agency Infratel has signed an agreement to bring free Wi-Fi to Alta Murgia National Park in the southern region of Puglia (Apulia). In a statement, MISE said the deal is part of the 'Wi-Fi Italia' initiative and will see several hotspots deployed throughout the park's near 700 square kilometre area so that residents and tourists alike can access internet on the go via the corresponding app. Pilots of new technologies such as Li-Fi for park services will also be carried out in the coming months.
