5G

100GB of 5G data for under EUR 10, part of new plan by Iliad Italia

100GB of 5G data for under EUR 10, part of new plan by Iliad Italia

Iliad Italia has launched a new plan dubbed ‘Flash 100 5G’ with 100GB of data at maximum possible speeds of up to 5G plus unlimited calls and SMS for EUR 9.99 a month.

The plan by the telco improves its inaugural 5G offer of 70GB of data for the same price launched at the end of last year, which was initially available for one month before being renamed ‘Giga 70’.

Some of the benefits mentioned in the plan include unlimited minutes of voice calls and SMS, as well as valid for roaming in Europe. Customers used to benefit from those features in the past plans.

When the user is in a European country, he also has an extra 6GB for data traffic outside Italy. Added to this are unlimited calls to mobile and landline phones in over 60 countries around the world.

In March 2017, Italy launched a 5G trial to implement infrastructures and services in 5 cities: the metropolitan area of Milan, Prato, L’Aquila, Bari and Matera. In September 2017, authorisation was granted for the use of 100 Mhz in the 3.6-3.8 Ghz band for the roll-out of 5G in 5 Italian cities.

Iliad 5g coverage

Iliad 5G is arriving in the first cities, by working to increase the 5G network coverage, already available in some areas of the following cities: Alessandria, Bari, Bologna, Brescia, Cagliari, Como, Ferrara, Florence, Genoa, amongst others.

The new plan also include the operator including all 5G smartphones among the devices compatible with the 5G iliad network, having the below devices already available:

Huawei: P40, P40 Pro, P40 Pro +
Oppo: Reno4 5G, Reno4 Pro 5G, Find X2 Lite, Find X2 Neo, Find X2 Pro
Xiaomi: MI 10T Lite 5G, Mi 10, Mi 10T, Mi 10T Pro, Mi 10 Pro
Motorola: Edge, Moto G 5G Plus, Moto Razr 5G
Nokia: Nokia 8.3 5Ge

Iliad Italia gained 580,000 net new customers in Q3 2020, reaching 6.8 million mobile subscribers at end-September 2020, and said it now has an almost 9% share of the Italian mobile market.

In Italy, Iliad said it recorded “a very high number” of net additions despite ongoing targeted and aggressively priced offerings launched by competitors and the market’s lower churn rate since late February, when the government introduced initial restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19.

While any traveler can get an Italy sim card on his arrival to the country without a problem, there is also the option of buying one online before the trip.
