Over half of Italian broadband lines above 10 Mbps - Agcom

Wednesday 22 March 2017 | 08:59 CET | News
The number of Italian fixed broadband lines at speeds of 10 Mbps or higher passed 50 percent of the broadband total for the first time at the end of 2016, according to the latest figures from regulator Agcom. The total at the end of the fourth quarter came to 15.6 million, some 570,000 higher than a year earlier, with a 1.2 million rise in the number of fibre-optic lines offsetting the 610,000 fall in ADSL lines. In addition, the number of next-generation broadband lines delivering speeds of at least 30 Mbps rose 1.1 million over the 12-month period to reach 2.3 million on 31 December.
