The Italian cellular operator 3 Italia has partnered with fibre-based broadband provider FastWeb to launch a new mobile Wi-Fi service. The new offering, dubbed 3 Wi-Fi, combines the cellco’s 3G and 4G mobile networks with wireless LAN access points connected to the FastWeb fibre-optic network. A one-month trial of the service has been launched for 35,000 users in the city of Monza, offering unlimited data usage via Wi-Fi. Handsets automatically switch between the two networks when in range of a Wi-Fi signal, without interrupting the internet connection. There are currently 34 access points installed around Monza, 3 Italia says.
