According to data published by the Autorita per le Garanzie nelle Comunicazioni (Agcom), the number of mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) subscribers in Italy reached 5.24 million at the end of 2013, up from 4.50 million a year earlier. The sector continues to be dominated by Poste Mobile, which claimed a 54.2% share of the spoils at year-end, albeit down from 55.2% on an annualised basis. According to Agcom statistics, this gives Poste Mobile a 2.8% share of the overall mobile market.
