Eric, Robert, Diego and I spent the day in Milano today. It was the first day in which Fon employees went to Italy but it was amazing to see that we already have over 800 foneros in Italy and Telecom Italia only has around 1000 of their hotspots and we had NEVER been to Italy as a company (I lived in Italy when I was in college and speak Italian).
In Milano we met great people who showed tremendous interest in Fon. Basically we spent all day in a hotel room greeting Italian Foneros and people who we wanted to contact. On the unusual side we learned that Italy is one of the only countries in the world in which a significant portion of the DSL customers pay by the hour. I personally wanted to thank Stefano Vitta who has been helping us as a volunteer in Italy since we started. ¡Grazie Stefano!
