In the Italian broadband market there is strong competition within the DSL sector, supplemented by a vibrant fibre sector spearheaded by efforts from Telecom Italia and supplemented by investments from 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 thus far secured two of the three tenders to extend fibre-based broadband access to underserved areas.
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.
