“With Pec, the relationship between citizens and the Public Administration is made simpler: an important step towards digital literacy in the country, already confirmed by the success of the service in its first hours. Telecom Italia is delighted to have contributed to this project, which was strongly supported by Minister Brunetta, with its own technological infrastructure and with state of the art IT services”, said Gabriele Galateri di Genola, Chairman of Telecom Italia, speaking at the presentation of the launch of the certified e-mail service.
“Broadband – said Galateri – is essential to enable the new certified e-mail system, which allows citizens to communicate simply and quickly with the Public Administration. Today 90% of the population has access to the internet with a broadband connection and I can say that this result is also due to considerable investment by Telecom Italia. Now it is important that the demand for services is developed: 50% of Italian families do not have a pc and therefore it is necessary to stimulate this demand; the availability of useful services, like the one presented today, is certainly also an important incentive to this effect”.
“For Telecom Italia – Galateri concluded– this is also a sign of coherence with a path that we are taking to making innovation increasingly more aimed at improving the quality of life for citizens, in both the education and health sectors or in territorial urban security. For every euro invested in ICT 1.5 of GDP is produced”.
