Italian fixed broadband lines up nearly 1 mln year on year in Q3

Monday 15 January 2018 | 15:10 CET | News
The number of Italian fixed broadband lines hit 16.4 million at the end of the third quarter of 2017, up 950,000 year on year, according to preliminary data from regulator Agcom. A 1.90 million rise in the number of fibre-optic lines offset the 960,000 fall in DSL lines, with lines offering speeds of 10 Mbps or higher accounting for 64 percent of the broadband total, while 23 percent of the lines now deliver 30 Mbps-plus speeds, said the watchdog. There were a total of 4.9 million high-speed fixed broadband lines at the end of September 2017, the vast majority of them FTTC-FTTH connections.
