Iliad has become the latest Italian operator to launch commercial 5G services, initially in covered parts of 27 cities throughout the territory with more to come next year. The subsidiary of France's Iliad, which switched on its 5G network last week, had 6.84 million subscribers at the end of September, equivalent to almost 9 percent of the Italian market.
