MasMovil joins Spain's big league with Yoigo takeover

Thursday 30 June 2016 | 15:50 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer, Corina Schultz | Background
The newly formed fourth mobile network operator in Spain, combining MasMovil and Yoigo, is set to take around 8 percent of the total mobile market, according to the latest figures from Telecompaper. While MasMovil will remain the smallest player in the mobile market, its spectacular growth path through a string of acquisitions suggests it is ready to try where Telia failed and take on the big players. The company will now need to prove it can grow also organically and win over customers.
