Italy: TIM lead download speeds whilst Vodafone head our latency charts

Our findings for Italy for the last quarter place TIM at the top of our download speed chart, with average speeds on 4G of 25.60Mbps, ahead of Vodafone, 3 and Wind, and reaching highs of 29.16Mbps in Emilia-Romagna.

Whilst they still have a long way to go to match the market share of TIM, Vodafone and Wind Tre, French operator Iliad also launched in Italy in May and after just 50 days have already secured 1 million subscribers. A statistic sure to cause some panic for the three leaders in the region.

3 provide the best network stability

With the lowest average results for packet loss and jitter, 3 demonstrated the best network stability of the group. TIM placed well for low packet loss but are let down by their high average jitter in comparison with 3.  

CK Hutchison, soon to be sole owner of Wind Tre pending regulatory approval, appear confident about growing their position in the Italian market despite the entrance of French operator Iliad, as they announce a bid to take over the 50% of the telco they don’t already own from Amsterdam’s Veon for €2.45bn.
