Italy's Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) announced an agreement with Poste Italiane to add the country's post offices to the 'Wi-Fi Italia' initiative run with state-owned infrastructure agency Infratel. The deal will see a hotspot installed in all post offices so that anyone can access the internet for free via a dedicated app, said the ministry, adding that this is only the first phase of an agreement that envisages the creation of a number of services at post offices backed by the Wi-Fi Italia network.
