2019 has been a year of major change for the Italian wireless world. In the last 12 months, we’ve seen the launch of commercial 5G networks from TIM and Vodafone, the rapid growth of a challenger network, and aggressive promotional activities that are driving more mobile data consumption than ever before.
At a time when established operators are transitioning between network technologies, and new wireless networks are being built out at a rapid pace, the quality of user experience becomes more important than ever.
In this State of Mobile Networks report, global independent mobile data company Tutela uses tens of millions of speed tests and billions of mobile measurements to better understand how mobile networks are functioning for real-world paying subscribers. Tutela has conducted over 20 million speed tests, 311 million latency tests, and 1.9 billion total mobile records from over 1.4 million mobile subscribers in Italy, with records gathered from May 1st to October 31st, 2019.
