We learn that up to now 200 operators have asked to be accredited on the platform for the allocation of funds: of these, 151 have obtained the green light to participate in the initiative.

The team responsible for evaluating the offers approved 420 of 64 different realities, while 412 were rejected due to contractual clauses different from what is indicated in the agreement (often concerning the tacit renewal at the expiry of the contract), insufficient service levels ( band in upload), devices not in line with the minimum technical specifications required, discrepancies between the documents presented and the data uploaded to the Voucher Portal.

With Phase 1 of the Voucher Plan for the connectivity of MiSE and Infratel Italia, ultra-broadband connections and quality devices are ensured for the weakest segments of the population quickly to respond to the health emergency in progress. The progress of the Plan described in today's report, which accounts for the great work that employees and collaborators of Infratel Italia are carrying out in recent weeks, is proving us right and the commitment of Infratel Italia alongside the MiSE is oriented to respond needs, increased in recent months, of citizens' digital services.
