The race for 4G Availability is heating up at the national level, and this was definitely reflected in Italy's cities. Of the seven metropoles we analyzed, we recorded draws in every one except Rome (which was won by Vodafone). We also recorded 4G Availability scores of over 90% on at least one operator's network in five out of the seven cities — with Milan worthy of a special mention, as four operators have passed the 90% milestone in the fashion capital.
We saw a similarly close race in Download Speed Experience in Italy's biggest cities, as the spoils were shared between the two leaders. Both TIM and Vodafone won in two cities each, while we saw ties in the remaining three. The two operators both passed the 40 Mbps Download Speed Experience milestone in Bologna, but the highest average speed we recorded was a hugely impressive 43.7 Mbps on TIM's network in Turin.
TIM's dominance in Latency Experience at a national level carried over into Italy's cities, as the operator came top in six out of seven, drawing with Vodafone in Turin. But TIM has yet to crack the 30ms milestone in Latency Experience, despite coming within 0.1ms of this mark in Milan. And TIM led the pack in Video Experience, coming top in Bologna, Milan and Turin, and passing the 75 point mark in all three cities to gain an Excellent rating.
