TIM, Vodafone and WindTre to provide data-free distance learning access

Wednesday 18 November 2020 | 09:36 CET | News
Telecom Italia (TIM), Vodafone and WindTre have agreed to give student subscribers across Italy access to distance learning platforms without consuming their data bundles, according to a joint statement from Italy's ministries of Education, Equal Opportunities and Technological Innovation and Digitisation. The government invited the country's main MNOs to come up with solutions that would allow children to follow lessons remotely during the second wave of Covid-19 infections and the three operators accepted the invitation to exclude distance learning platforms from data subscriptions.
