Italy's telecommunications regulator AgCom has announced that average 4G download speeds enjoyed by customers of TIM (Telecom Italia), Vodafone and Wind Tre have increased by 23 percent over the past year to 28Mbps, reflecting the investments of all three operators in new generation networks. The watchdog conducted surveys in 40 Italian cities from October 2016 to March 2017 using its revamped mobile internet speed testing tool, which revealed that average 4G speeds in Milan hit 31Mbps, up 25 percent year on year. Average 3G download speeds also inched up, by 3 percent, to 12Mbps.
