Telecom Italia (TI) says it will begin offering 4G LTE services in Italy on Nov. 7, though service will initially be limited to USB modems and tablets. Vodafone's (VOD) Italian unit plans to launch on Oct. 30. The carriers, whose Italian mobile arms have seen demand slump thanks to macro conditions and the cannibalizing effect of data services, are hoping 4G demand will provide a needed boost. (Blip Mobile)
