Italy’s large telecom market has one of the highest mobile penetration rates in Europe and has benefitted from progressive government programs aimed at developing the fibre broadband sector. These programs include the Open Fiber project and plan to merge Open Fibre with TIM’s fixed infrastructure. Regulatory measures have also been introduced to facilitate access to NGNs, and a number of deals have been brokered which enable the main telcos to provide bundled services to large numbers of the population.

Italy’s vibrant mobile market has one of the highest penetration rates in Europe, though the number of subscribers has fallen in recent years as customers respond to attractive off-net pricing which has reduced the financial benefit of having SIM cards from different providers. The market underwent considerable changes following the merger of Wind and 3 Italia (becoming Wind Tre), which resulted in a new entrant in the form of Iliad. In mid-2019 Fastweb was recognized as an MNO in its own right, having been an MVNO for some 11 years. The company has secured spectrum in the 3.5GHz and 26GHz bands and has a ten-year deal with Wind Tre providing it with national roaming as well as a partner with which to develop a 5G network.

Network operators were among the first in Europe to trial services based on 5G. Recent spectrum auctions raised €6.55 billion, a cost which has encouraged operators to looking at cost-saving options including network build cooperation and the sale of base station portfolios.

This report analyses the key aspects of the Italian telecom market, providing the latest data and statistics on the fixed network services sector. It also reviews the key regulatory issues including number portability and local loop unbundling. In addition, the report assesses the fixed and fixed wireless broadband sectors, including the burgeoning fibre market. The report also analyses the mobile voice and data markets, including statistics, key regulatory issues and an assessment of deployed technologies and operator strategies in the face of competitive pressures and new opportunities.

Key Developments:

  • BT Italia considers sale of its Italian assets
  • Telecom Italia extends superfast broadband to 19 million premises
  • TIM and Open Fibre in network merger talks
  • Fastweb's fibre network reaching about 60% of the population

  • TIM and Vodafone agree on tower network merge to support 5G rollout
  • TIM launches 5G in six cities
  • Fastweb and Wind Tre sign 5G network-sharing deal
  • Regulator raises €6.55 billion in multi spectrum auction, reduces MTRs by a third
  • Report update includes the regulator's market data to June 2019, telcos' operating and financial data to Q3 2019, Telecom Maturity Index charts and analyses; recent market developments
