Notwithstanding internet banking is now widely used by retail customers, little is known about its effect on the banking industry. In this paper we study how internet banking relates to branching policies in Italian local credit markets. Focusing on the period 2012-2015, we show that branch closures were more intense for those local markets and banks where the diffusion of digital banking services was higher.
