Italy's home broadband penetration up to 69.5% - study

Thursday 21 December 2017 | 13:45 CET | News
The proportion of Italian households accessing the internet by means of a fixed broadband connection climbed to 69.5 percent in 2017, up from 67.4 percent last year and 52.4 percent in 2010, according to a report from national statistics agency Istat. The generational gap remains wide, with some 92 percent of those aged 15 to 24 connected to the web compared to 68 percent of 55 to 59 year olds, while the country still lags behind other EU countries, above all in the use of e-commerce as a channel for the purchase and sale of goods and services, said the report.
