BROADBAND? This is not the age of access (according to Jeremy Rifkin), but it was the area of obscurantism, this Country has levels of internet coverage from the third world.

From a study of the European Commission, in Italy only 21% of households have access to high speed Internet with the lower coverage among the various members of the European Community. A slower connection means the most backward services, with the services becoming more reversed and with e-commerce sites that are less secure, also with services and platforms that struggle to take off.

A Public Administration that is on line can never truly become 2.0, losing yet another appointment with global digitalization and the simplification of the PA and all those projects promoted by different governments rampant, with winning ideas but often hampered by lobbing or bureaucratic interests. Yet the short chain of public administration could really give winning connotations in this country. Why is it sluggish? Is it due to the delay of the Digital Agenda?

Today, if you’re not online, you’re nobody and do not work with anyone. The American giants led by the high speed technologies of the Silicon Valley, are eating up all the business and markets.  

Despite old Europe and prehistoric Italy.

Before you think about two-speed internet, in Italy it is the case worth discussing and it is more than just speed. That network connection is low: in the third quarter of 2014, the average is 5.5 megabits per second, according to the latest report from Akamai. Translated into daily activities, for example, means that to download a movie purchased from an online store, it takes thirty minutes, while in other countries it only takes four or five minutes.

Fault of the technological infrastructure is still not aligned tosatelliti google in orbita per portare internet in tutto il mondo the standards of most advanced countries: the surprise is not so much to fight in speed, both Switzerland (15.5 Mbps) or first country in the world Both South Korea (25.3 Mbps), but who in the world rankings are equal with that of Uruguay?

Data from Akamai, like all surveys, are questionable, but the numbers REMAIN daunting by any source such as from: the European Commission, for example, in Italy only 21% of Households have access to high speed Internet, the lowest coverage among the various members of the community.

A slower connection services means more service backlogs and more awkward to use, e-commerce sites that are less secure, services and platforms that are struggling to take off. Some of these sites include the government, banks and schools online. Or television on the internet, and this is not just streaming movies and TV shows, but also the sale of televisions (it is estimated that a smart TV on the two were never connected on the Network).

In Italy in 2014, 32 percent of the population between 16 and 74 years has never connected to the Internet, has never sent an email, does not use Whatsapp, and has never bought any items or services online. Statistics show a Country stuck deep in the Middle Ages.

The great contradiction is that despite recording these huge Gaps, in connectivity and bandwidth speed. Between Italy and the United States, Italy boasts a larger number of uGrafico-1_Ricerca-LiveXtensionsers, and growing, more access to social media. We are more social, but with a much lower bandwidth and less widespread. This means that if they were accelerated the processes of development of a ubiquitous network access, (the famous digital agenda). Imagine the enormous advantages of the connection in rural schools, where they do not use it to work out line problems. Businesses are uncompetitive because it is not present on social channels and e-commerce, where you are playing the real game of true global e-business. Imagine Italian museums very often forced to not develop e-commerce systems for the sale of tickets online because it is not served by a fast network, thus losing the online presale of American and international tour operators.

Worse than Italy would have to be Romania, where, they connect and have an average speed much higher according to Akamai, even eight times for, one of the most used worldwide to test the connection speed. We are better off with the mobile network: Internet connections via smartphones and tablets grow, speed is the average of the European Community. Will a phone be used to save us? Hopefully and bringing spending on digital from 4.8 percent of GDP to 6.6 percent, according to Conf-industri that is expected to rise to 700,000 jobs by 2020.

Digital Agenda, remember this name.
