Rome, which sees a single, fast broadband network as crucial to closing Italy's digital gap with the rest of Europe, aims to use the European funds to upgrade the former phone monopoly's network from copper to fibre by 2025, a government source said.

Uber's U-turn has been prompted by a pandemic-linked regulatory clampdown in countries including Chile and Colombia, where the ride-hailing it has built its name on is unregulated. The San Francisco start-up's Chinese rival Didi, which has made big inroads in Latin America in recent years, has a head start in working with taxi drivers in the region.
