Telecom Italia unveils fixed line video service

11 Jun 2004

Telecom Italia (TI) is to launch a new service enabling its fixed line customers to make video calls from their own home phones. According to TI, around 20 million of its customers will be able to take advantage of the new service by simply upgrading their existing phone, as the new service does not require either a line upgrade or any extra devices. The move comes in the wake of the success of the company’s fixed line SMS and MMS service Aladino. If successful in its domestic market TI will roll out video call services to its customers in France and Germany in the near future.
