Italian mobile market headed for changes after merger, entry of new provider

Wednesday 4 October 2017 | 16:39 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer | Background
The merger of Wind and 3 Italia and the upcoming arrival of Iliad have already led to reactions in the Italian mobile market. The most important are the introduction of low-cost brands by competitors, adjustment of current offers including new FMC offers and WindTre refinancing its debt for future projects. Iliad is getting ready to launch, with a possible entrance at the end of this year or beginning of 2018. The newly merged Italian operator Wind Tre maintained its number one position in terms of mobile SIMs in the second quarter of 2017, according to the latest figures from Telecompaper.
