Italian fixed broadband subs up nearly 3% to 17.7 mln in Q2 - study

Thursday 14 January 2021 | 11:18 CET | News
The number of Italians subscribing to fixed broadband plans stood at 17.7 million at the end of the second quarter of 2020, up 2.8 percent year on year, according to the latest update from Point Topic. The annual rise was slightly above the regional average of 2.3 percent but the penetration of the technology among Italians remains relatively modest at 28 percent, while the launch of 5G may end up eating into the fixed broadband providers' customer numbers, said the researcher.
