Calling Italy from the UK?
The Italian telecommunications industry is a growing industry with government led schemes helping to increase speeds and widen the range of network coverage. International calls to Italy are becoming increasingly reliable and affordable.
Mobile broadband and wireless signals and speeds have increased nationwide, partially thanks to an estimated on-going government investment in the telecommunications networks of between 1.1 and 1.5 billion euros. This investment has not only improved coverage and speed but has greatly expanded the number of mobile subscribers within Italy. From 2010 to 2011 the mobile telecommunications sector grew by 2.4 percent, increasing from 93.6 million to 95.9 million users and subscribers. An estimated total spend on telecom equipment throughout the country in 2010 of over 45,846 million dollars US helped to cement Italy as one of the fastest growing telecommunication sectors anywhere in the world. The launch of 4G and 4G LTE in 2012 has added to this already rapid growth and has secured a level of investment that will ensure the Italian telecommunications market continues to grow quickly and to previously unseen levels.
The recent boost in, and necessity to further develop, the Italian telecommunications market has been partly due to the vast number of Italian citizens and ethnic Italians living internationally and wanting to call home at affordable rates. In the UK there are an estimated 255,403 Italians currently claiming either full time or part time residence, the 12th largest international community outside of Italy. These numbers of Italians living and growing up abroad, coupled with the amounts of international business conducted with Italy and also the large number of companies based in Italy, has made a reliable and cost effective service a must have. To call Italy from the UK with Lycamobile couldn't be simpler or more affordable.
