Hello!Thanks for such a great resource
Hello!Thanks for such a great resource. I have a question about internet access in Italy:I'm self-employed and work from home. We're looking to move from the UK to Italy, but I'm having difficulty tracking down suitable locations.Because internet reliability and speed are crucial, these are (sadly) the highest criteria, above all others. I'd love to live in a rural area, but I accept that's highly unlikely to happen. Where we can live is entirely dependent on the available internet speeds.The absolute minimum I can deal with is about 25Mbps downstream and about 10Mbps upstream. Would prefer around 100Mbps / 100 Mbps. We also need to be able to download/upload maybe 400GB per month. What's important here is the delivery mechanism: how the data gets to the house, determining the available speeds.So this means that it can't be ADSL or 3G, nor satellite.It could be VDSL (in the UK this is called "Fibre to the Cabinet" or misleadingly "Fibre") but we would have to be right next to the street cabinet because the available speed drops too far once the bit of wire connecting the house to said cabinet is more than about 600m long. Trying to find a location where this is workable is detailed and tricky (it's exactly the same in the UK).Or, 4G, but that's unsafe - it might run quickly at first, but once the network is busy, speeds may drop too far since the speed is shared among users accessing it. Also, this may be restrictive in terms of quantity of data usage. Not sure how 5G is coming along, it is in its infancy in the UK. Guessing there's not much.Leaving cable or Fibre (actual fibre, sometimes called FTTP - Fibre to the Premises).The information I've seen suggests that Milan is about the only place to go with a comprehensive (covers most properites, we'd still have to check when we find somewhere, just to make sure) and capable network. But that may be old information.Returning to my point - all this determines where we can live, it's not negotiable, there cannot be any compromise. I wonder if that information remains accurate.Can anyone give me a steer on this and update my (possibly) out of date knowledge, or is there a website which has some sort of map where you can click "Fibre" and "Cable" as options, excluding others, the map of Italy is then zoomable and clickable with the possible areas highlighted, and then drill down to street level?Thanks so much.
