Virus impact over each market - telecom operators, government agencies and regulators' responses - revised forecasts for the next 5 years.
In the Italian broadband market there remains strong competition within the DSL sector, though the focus in recent years has shifted to the vibrant fibre broadband market, spearheaded by investment efforts from Telecom Italia, other telcos, municipal governments and the government-supported wholesale network provider Open Fiber. Into 2020, discussions continue regarding plans (preferred by the government) to combine the fibre networks of Telecom Italia and Open Fiber, and thus avoid further duplication and unnecessary investment. Open Fiber expected to complete most of its network rollout by the end of 2022.
Regulatory measures have also been introduced to facilitate access to NGNs, while the government, supported by EU funds, is investing to provide broadband across the country as part of its Digital Plan – Ultra-broadband initiative.
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.

Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.
