Telecom Italia (TIM) has activated 5,000 cabinets in digital divide areas throughout the country to reinforce a network facing a substantial traffic increase as a result of the coronavirus lockdown. "We have added 5,000 new cabinets in the so-called white areas that allow us to quickly connect a million more people to the 'ultrabroadband' service, with all the advantages that come with it in terms of connection speed," said CEO Luigi Gubitosi in an interview with Italian daily Corriere della Sera.
