Italian fixed broadband lines top 17 mln in Q4

Friday 26 April 2019 | 16:15 CET | News
Italian fixed broadband lines increased to 17.06 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2018, up around 530,000 year on year, according to the latest data from regulator Agcom. A 2.8 million rise in the number of FTTC, FTTH and FWA lines more than offset the 2.3 million fall in DSL lines, with lines offering speeds of 10 Mbps or higher accounting for over 75 percent of the broadband total, while 45 percent of the lines now deliver 30 Mbps-plus speeds, said the regulator.
