Italian fixed broadband lines up to 16.6 mln in Q4

Wednesday 18 April 2018 | 09:59 CET | News
The number of Italian fixed broadband lines increased to 16.6 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2017, up over 1 million year on year, according to preliminary data from regulator Agcom. A 2.3 million rise in the number of fibre-optic lines offset the 1.3 million fall in DSL lines, with lines offering speeds of 10 Mbps or higher accounting for over two-thirds of the broadband total, while 27 percent of the lines now deliver 30 Mbps-plus speeds, said the regulator.
