“Senza Fili, Senza Confini”: broadband with broader views

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares × [2]

The “Senza Fili, Senza Confini” initiative, whose name in English would read, more or less, “Wireless, Borderless” is a spin-off of an experiment made by¬†Politecnico di Torino professor Daniele Trinchero [3], intended to bring WIFI broadband in rural areas using low cost technologies. The experiment, that dates back to late 2014, was conducted in Verrua Savoia (Turin) and proved a big success, as it demonstrated how broadband can be delivered to white areas without the need for very large investments, provided that a no-profit structure is maintained. Now, the association –> senzafilisenzaconfini.it [4]¬†is making an attempt to enlarge the scope of its activity from rural Piedmont to a larger audience in Italy and, possibly, over the Border. An interesting article to this respect was published today by Repubblica (–> here [5]).
