Where do italian Public Administration web sites live?

Pubblica Amministrazione - valutazione rischi e beneficiIt’s important how we choose our hosting provider and it depends on a lot of aspects. As a Public Administration I first would identify my visitors profile: how many they are, from where they connect (country), through which ISP they connect to the Internet.
Answering those simple questions I could select an hosting company that best fits my needs.

Now, in Italy the broadband consumer market (land lines) is dominated by Telecom Italia with a 49% share, Wind with 15.7%, Fastweb 14%, Vodafone 11.9% (Q1 2014 data).

That simply means that your web site, in Italy, should be perfectly reachable from Telecom Italia customers, Wind’s, Vodafone‘s and Fastweb‘s. It is true for the majority of italian Public Administration’s web sites, our study finds. Out of 8.405 hosts, 25.41% is hosted by Telecom Italia, 23,41% by Aruba and 6.6% by Fastweb.

Some of the ASes listed above actually connect to an Internet exchange point thereby reducing the average per-bit delivery cost of their service and improving their routing efficiency and fault-tolerance. Although a lot of them are not exchanging Internet routes with Telecom Italia, I’ll leave out the discussion about Telecom Italia de-peering decision.
