Thanks to an agreement between Poste Italiane and the Ministry of Economic Development, users will be able to use free Wi-Fi in post offices
C queues at the Post Office will be less boring and stressful in the coming months. Thanks to an agreement between Poste Italiane and the Ministry of Economic Development, it will be possible to connect to Wi-Fi for free while waiting in line at the Post Office to pay a bill or collect your pension money. Post offices will be included in the Piazza WiFi Italia project, launched last February by Infratel and which aims to bring free Wi-Fi in small Italian municipalities.
In recent years the State has been investing a lot to bring free Wi-Fi in the squares and public places of Italian municipalities. Thanks to European and State funds, a project has been launched to transform Italy into a smart nation. In a nation where many small municipalities still do not receive fiber, offering free Wi-Fi to citizens is an excellent initiative, very useful to decrease the digital divide. The memorandum of understanding between Poste Italiane and the Ministry of Economic Development has been signed and in the coming months we will see the first post offices with free Wi-Fi for users.
How free Wi-Fi works at the Post Office
The agreement between Poste Italiane and MiSE is not really new. A project for free Wi-Fi in the Post Office has been active for several years, but the offices touched by this initiative are not many and are mainly concentrated in big cities. With this initiative, even users in small towns will be able to take advantage of the free Wi-Fi of the Piazza WiFi Italia project.
To access the free Wi-Fi network of the Post Office, you will have to log in through an application developed ad hoc and that can be easily downloaded from the Google Play Store and App Store.
Thanks to this agreement, more and more Italians will be able to have a fast and free connection, even while they are waiting at the Post Office to run an errand.
