Tuesday 15 December 2020 | 09:39 CET | News
Italy's three main operators – Telecom Italia (TIM), Vodafone Italia and WindTre – have responded positively to a new government call to give their customers free data at Christmas with a view to limiting in-person contacts and coronavirus infections. Italy's Minister for Technological Innovation and Digitisation Paula Pisano urged the companies to offer free data so that family members could remain in touch while respecting government restrictions on household meetings, with both Vodafone and TIM offering all customers unlimited traffic between 6pm on 24 December and midnight on 25 December.
