Telecom Italia (TIM) has reached an agreement with the University of Padua to help students follow their courses remotely via online classes. The deal is part of the university's EUR 15 million investment in support of digital teaching, above all with a view to mitigating the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on their academic studies. TIM said it will be supplying some 48,000 SIM cards with 60GB a month of data at favourable rates to the university and renting the same number of mobile Wi-Fi routers to all enrolled students as well as those who graduated less than a year ago.
