Italian telecom revenues down over 4% in 2019, data ARPU plummets

Wednesday 8 July 2020 | 10:46 CET | News
Total revenues in Italy's telecommunications sector reached EUR 29.8 billion in 2019, down 4.4 percent year on year, according to the annual report of industry regulator Agcom. Total fixed network revenues fell 1.7 percent year on year to EUR 16.2 billion in 2019 with mobile revenues plunging 7.3 percent to EUR 13.7 billion due above all to the ongoing price war launched by Italy's MNOs following the market entry of low-cost challenger Iliad in 2018.
