Air usually considers new placements at the end of the year and then puts them in place throughout the next year.


But they do not tell us beforehand which locations they intend to either add or augment; perhaps because there's many things which can obstruct their plans and they don't want to disappoint their customers.


It's not likely that Italy will be added though, since it was in 2014 that it was taken off-line, due to the legal situation associated with working in Italy:


We're very sorry to inform you that Crucis has been withdrawn and that we have no plans to open any new server in Italy at the moment. This unfortunate decision is due to the pressure correctly put on us by Italy competent authorities for minor investigations about a myriad of minor crimes perpetrated through the server.


The bureaucratic procedures behind every single crime, as small as it is, all together are impacting the credibility of our good faith in Italy. This is an unfortunate combination, because the server is in the same country where our legal offices are located, so even a presumed crime of a "1 EUR theft" needs to be addressed and followed. Our presence is needed in authorities offices with a consequence of an incredible time waste and the more crimes are committed, the higher the likelihood that some magistrate will try to to put on us the burden of primary or secondary liability, given the continuous flow of crimes which we are informed about and therefore considered to be aware of. We don't have the obligations of an Internet Service Provider, but at the same time we might not have anymore the same protection as a mere conduit.


In order to prevent any potential, bigger problem, we have therefore decided to put an end to VPN activity in any Italian server. RAI (Italy TV) will remain accessible from any other VPN server in the world and we can add additional services with our "micro-routing" feature.
