Iliad overtakes PosteMobile to reach 5.6% of Italian SIMs in Q3

Thursday 16 January 2020 | 09:43 CET | News
The Italian mobile market added 0.5 million lines in the 12 months to end of September 2019, reaching a total of 101.4 million thanks mainly to a 3.3 million surge in M2M lines, which offset a 2.7 million fall in traditional human SIMs, according to the latest report from regulator Agcom corresponding to Q3 2019. Just under 70 percent of human SIMs used data traffic, up from 50 percent in 2015, with the average data consumed rising over 60 percent year on year to 6.3 GB a month in the third quarter.
