November 15, 2019 GMT

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 15, 2019--

The “Italy - Fixed Broadband Market - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report presents key statistics on the Italian broadband market, including the burgeoning fibre sector. It also assesses the wireless market, detailing the regulatory treatment for WiMAX auctions, and providing broadband subscriber forecasts.

In the Italian broadband market there is strong competition within the DSL sector, supplemented by a vibrant fibre sector spearheaded by investment efforts from Telecom Italia, other telcos and municipal governments. In the absence of effective cross-platform competition from cable networks, services based on upgraded DSL networks have benefited from the market entry of new players such as Vodafone.

Regulatory measures have also been introduced to facilitate access to NGNs, while the government is investing 4 billion to provide broadband across the country. The wholesale provider Open Fibre has extended fibre-based broadband access to underserved areas and signed wholesale access agreements with a number of operators, including Sky Italia which is expected to launch broadband services in the northern Spring of 2019.
