San Marino - Infrastructure, power, and communications
Italy supplies virtually all of San Marino's electricity, and the domestic automatic telephone system is completely integrated into the Italian telecommunications system. Main (fixed) phone lines (nearly 20,000) and cellular phones are ubiquitous, yet in 1999 there was only 1 local Internet service provider. The country has its own local television station and 3 local FM radio stations, although Italian broadcasting and cable TV is available everywhere. The republic has only a 1.5-kilometer (1 mile) cable railway, which connects the city of San Marino to the community of Borgo Maggiore. Virtually all of the 220 kilometers (138 miles) of roads in San Marino are paved. The country has no naval ports or airports, relying instead on Italy's extensive and advanced transportation facilities.
