Re: Good For Nokia And Italy's All Fiber Network
Rural Italy is going to have speeds much faster than what I can get in the suburban United States! Good on them, but I'm a little jealous.

Re: Was able
This is why the internet is the true great equalizer--the question is whether the majors will somehow mess it all up to preserve their own turf.

Was able
Using the internet, I was able to make a reservation directly with the independent owner of a rural farmhouse-turned-bed-and-breakfast in Italy. I was amazed by that. I can only imagine what will come of larger broadband "pipes" to rural areas in Italia.

Good For Nokia And Italy's All Fiber Network
Open Fiber's choice to team up with Nokia seems to be a nice bright light for Nokia leadiing to most likely some nice eventual profits as the wholesaler's new provider in line with Italy's plan for the "creation of a nationwide high-speed all-fiber optic network."

Consumers are buying millions of IoT devices, from smart thermostats and security systems to intelligent entertainment setups and furniture. Yet many of these devices remain isolated because home users are uncomfortable connecting them to each other or even their WiFi. After all, their WiFi network was probably designed only to handle a few laptops, a gaming system and a couple of smartphones. Now, demand on the network is surging and even though you're delivering 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, that doesn't necessarily mean the broadband power is in the right place or reaches every corner of a home.

Even if WiFi coverage is sufficient, typing is not on trend. Voice is far more natural, easier and faster. Using a TV keyboard is archaic when more and more households have access to cloud-based voice services, like Amazon Alexa. This webinar will explore how service providers can create a comfortable, truly smart home for consumers simultaneously driving up margin and loyalty.
