Wind Tre customers down nearly 3 mln year on year to 25.7 mln

Thursday 1 August 2019 | 12:30 CET | News
The customer base of Italian operator Wind Tre has fallen over 10 percent year on year to 25.7 million at the end of June from 28.6 million a year earlier due mainly to the disruptive effects of low-cost challenger Iliad, according to H1 results released by owner CK Hutchison. The arrival of Iliad as Italy's fourth network operator in May 2018 appears to have hurt the operator's prepay segment above all, with numbers plunging 30 percent year on year to 14.87 million while the postpay customer base ended June at 10.80 million, up 45 percent.
