When connected to the same router, a malicious user may take advantage of the WiFi network automatically generated in order to access to your personal device for illicit purposes. With WiTourist, only your family can connect to your WiFi network, through a unique password indicated on your...
All standard Italian data plans have traffic limits applied, and usually offer only a few GB per month. Once the set limit is surpassed, the connection is blocked or the speed is reduced to such a low level that even the most basic services will be unusable. After the speed is blocked or reduced,...
Today, none of the major Italian telephone operators offer a standard data plan with a fixed monthly fee, and with truly unlimited data. As mobile internet usage is increasing, these operators offer only “pay per use” plans with a certain number of GB available per month, in order to...

In the best case, coverage will be limited to only a specific section of a city center, like a neighborhood. Every antenna covers a specific area with a radius of a set...
Cost and Performance In the case of roaming, your home phone operator pays the Italian operator according to their specific agreement. Usually these fees range from 10 up to 500 €/Gb (for extra UE roaming). Consequently, if you use roaming “by consumption”, in the worst case...

This service is based on a mobile connection and if you use it intensively you subtract bandwidth from all other users connected to the same cell (antenna). For this reason, all the operators apply "fair policy" rules and may suspend a sim even in the case of "unlimited" data...
