Italy's Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) announced that state-owned infrastructure agency Infratel has signed an agreement with regional business-focused operator Connessi to carry out trials of 5G FWA networks in the central Umbria and Marche regions. The partners will use the 26-28 GHz frequency band for trials that will also focus on the integration between fixed-wireless access (FWA) and fibre-optic infrastructure, seen as crucial for reaching digitally underserved areas.
