TIM takes comfort in the category relating to measurements 5Gwhere it records 180.3 Mbps in download: followed by Vodafone with 173.6 Mbps, Iliad with 100.5 Mbps and WINDTRE with 80.8 Mbps.
To prevent individual users from having too much weight in the overall result, by repeating tests in the same locations, the average of the results is considered for each one: if a user performs 10 tests in Milan and 5 in Pavia, for example, a test will be counted with average value in Milan and one with average value in Pavia.
As regards the 8 major cities (Milan, Rome, Naples, Turin, Genoa, Palermo, Bologna and Florence) it is always Vodafone that records the best results with the highest average download speeds in 6 of them (4 in upload).
