Italy is one of Europe's most advanced telecommunications markets and the fourth-largest EU market by revenue, according to the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). However, in terms of internet users, the country is a developing market with one of the lowest user rates in the EU.

Italy was one of the economies worst hit by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. GDP fell by 8.9%, and the economy is expected to recover by 3.4% in 2021, aided by less stringent movement restrictions and the country's inoculation drive-as at mid-May the country had vaccinated about 15% of its population.

Mobile service providers recorded a decline in subscriptions and subsequently in total revenue in 2020. The closure of retail stores during lockdowns affected new subscriptions, and ongoing travel restrictions led to a fall in demand for connections among tourists. With the economy slipping into recession last year, upgrading smartphones was not a priority for customers, and so equipment sales were also affected.
