from July 31, 2012
at work even during the lockdown
Milan's public wireless network
is operational. About 560 hotspots
have been set up by the City Council in hundreds of locations, where anyone can enjoy a free
, although limited broadband ride.
Due to the Italian law - which requires hotspot administrators to monitor usage, recording who does what - accessing Open Wifi Milano requires notification of one's identity. You can either rely on a social login
or accept to receive on your cellphone number
a text message with a password. It may happen that every time you log on again you have to enter again you cellphone number and the password received.
A maximum of 300 MB
of traffic per day can be used. The service is currently available through Italian
telephone numbers only
