Through this Plan, Italy is aiming to guarantee connection speeds of at least 1 Gbps download and 200 Mbps (Megabits per second) upload throughout the country by 2026.) with the aim of promoting investment in ultra-broadbandBroadband The term broadband, in telecommunications, generally refers to the transmission and reception of information data at a connection speed of over 144 kb/s. Broadband organises different channels, conveying different content in the form of data, such as Internet radio, animation, audio files and high-definition video. networks to guarantee everyone a connection speed in line with the European GigabitGigabit The Gigabit is the unit of measurement that represents 1 billion bits and is abbreviated as Gbit or Gb. This unit of measurement is often used, together with the megabit and the kilobit, in relation to time (in seconds) for calculating the transmission speed of digital signals, mainly used to calculate the speed of a data download. The Gbit/s is currently a widely used unit of measurement to refer to data transmission speed in computer networks. society and Digital Compass 2030Digital Compass 2030 Through the 2030 Digital Compass, the European Union has set 4 macro-targets for member states to achieve in the areas of skills, business, infrastructure and public services. In terms of Gigabit connectivity, this plan stipulates the availability of a fixed ultra-fast network (at least 1 Gbps) and a mobile network (5G) in all populated areas of the continent by 2030.
