Italian mobile market: Wind Tre biggest, but TIM leads revenue growth ahead of Iliad entry

Tuesday 25 April 2017 | 14:00 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer | Background
As Iliad prepares to enter the Italian market, the three incumbent operators are re-positioning to protect their shares. Wind Tre, formed from the merger of Wind and 3 Italia at the end of 2016, has become the biggest mobile operator in terms of mobile SIMs and tied for number two in service revenues, according to the latest figures from Telecompaper. Furthermore, in contrast to other European mobile markets, Italy is growing, with service revenues up 0.7 percent year-on-year in the last quarter of 2016, led by market leader TIM.
