Where are you located (a little more precisely but still approximately)? WiMORE, Comunica, Rete-Tel, and ParmaEst look like possibilities.

I understand you're using dial-up Internet, but I'm wondering if you've specifically inquired about ISDN services. ISDN should go out as far as the copper wires do, so you've got that option. It's not blazing fast but it should be at least approximately 4 times better than analog dial-up.

Do you get any outdoor mobile (cellular) telephone coverage from any of the carriers?

Tooway offers satellite Internet service in Italy.

EOLO is another possibility. They've got towers deep into the rural/mountaneous areas from the looks of it. I see that at least one of EOLO's service resellers will fully refund the site survey cost if they cannot get service to your home.

Thanks, BBC watcher. The house is located in the Lecca vally area of val Ceno (PR). The commune is Bardi and Wifi is available there. There are too few houses and even fewer inhabitants to make it worth Telecom's time to put in wifi for us.

I should also say that we are at approx 1000 SLM and surrounded by deep vallys and trees.

I'm not exactly sure where that is, but I know where Bardi is. At least some of the providers I mentioned offer service in that general area. Comunica has some coverage in that general area though not to the west of Bardi. Progetto8 (one I didn't mention) claims they've recently expanded their coverage in and around Bardi.

Anyway, you've got a half dozen leads now, and at least a couple of them will have service for you (between ISDN and satellite at a minimum, and maybe one or more of the wireless Internet companies). Good luck.

Well, I'm back in the Uk. No joy with getting wifi set up. I did pay a company for the kit, but they didn't deliver it. I was told that they had to receive all sorts of signed papers, copies of passports etc. I couldn't download the attachments as we are on dial up and they never, ever sent them despite repeated requests. After two months I demanded my money back. It took a the intervention of Paypal to get it though.

Next year I think that I will get a mobile phone booster and get the internet through a sim card.

We have just had Connetti installed (dish on the side of the house)... but we are on a small hill so don't think that would be any use somewhere without mobile phone reception. Sorry!

For anyone else's info we felt that it was well worth the extra expense because the internet is then fast and unlimited (rather than on a key that you top up). We had got too used to unlimited internet in the UK to make the transition to a limited system!

We got another Italian speaking expat to make the phonecall to arrange it for us and then two guys turned up with all the equipment and fitted the dish etc. within an hour or so. Very efficient.

Hi Jessiemay,
How much did you pay?

About 500 euros all in I think.

We bought the dish and router etc. up front from Connetti and got a years access included. We could have rented the equipment from them instead, but after 2 years it would add up to the same and we decided that we'll be staying for at least 2 years!

After the first year you pay monthly, so from next year it will be 23 euros a month.
