Italy Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

Italy Telecommunications Report Q2 2015

BMI View: The Italian telecommunications sector is highly mature and very competitive. The austereeconomic climate has led to a weakening in consumer spending that has impacted operators of all sizes.This is exacerbated by regulatory pressure on retail and wholesale pricing even as operators are forced toinvesTheavily in next generation networks. This is not sustainable. WIND's sale of telecoms towers is asmall but necessary step; the potential sale of WIND to 3 Italia is a larger step, but one that is in tune withdevelopments across Europe. Telecom Italia's rebranding and deep spending on infrastructure is notsustainable and plans to install the operator as the leader of a new pooled broadband infrastructureprovider are possibly misguided. This will frustrate Vodafone, which is keen to acquire Fastweb and/orMetroweb, both of which would be subsumed into the new infrastructure company, if the government has itsway.

Key Data

BMI believes there were 88.801mn retail mobile subscribers in the country at the end of 2014, down4.2% y-o-y. Operators are shedding inactive accounts as they migrate customers to higher value postpaidand 3G/4G services. Uptake of 3G/4G subscriptions remains robust even in a difficult economic climateas consumer demand for smartphones drove growth.
