Friday 26 April 2019 | 15:41 CET | News
The Italian mobile market added some 3.5 million lines year on year in 2018, mostly thanks to a 4.8 million rise in M2M lines, which offset a 1.3 million fall in traditional SIMs, according to the latest report from regulator Agcom corresponding to Q4 2018. Total M2M lines came to 21.0 million at the end of December, up from 16.3 million a year earlier, while traditional voice only and voice and data SIMs fell to 82.6 million from 83.9 million. The average data consumed, meanwhile, soared by 55.6 percent year on year to 4.27 GB a month in Q4 2018.
