Italian fixed broadband lines surpass 16 mln in Q2 - Agcom

Tuesday 24 October 2017 | 11:07 CET | News
The number of Italian fixed broadband lines hit 16.2 million at the end of the second quarter, up 880,000 year on year, according to preliminary data from regulator Agcom. A 1.67 million rise in the number of fibre-optic lines offset the 790,000 fall in DSL lines, with lines offering speeds of 10 Mbps or higher accounting for 60 percent of the broadband total, while 20 percent of the lines now deliver 30 Mbps-plus speeds, said the watchdog.
