Iliad Italia helping to boost sector investment - CEO

Wednesday 6 February 2019 | 14:51 CET | News
Iliad Italia is helping to promote fresh investment in the domestic telecommunications sector as a whole with its low-cost policy, the company's CEO Benedetto Levi told a session of the Italian parliament's transport and telecom commission. "The entry of a new operator into the market has a positive effect on the entire sector... increasing investments and keeping the sector healthy," said Levi, according to Corriere delle Comunicazioni. "This is what occurred in France where from 2012 to 2017 investments increased by 17 percent a year," he claimed during the session.
