Spain's second-tier mobile providers find growth in shrinking market

Wednesday 22 July 2015 | 10:28 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer | Background
While service revenues continue to contract in Spain's mobile market, its smaller players are taking advantage of the consumer focus on low costs and growing their customer bases. The success of some mid-tier players, such as as Jazztel and Ono, has already led to takeovers by the bigger operators, while others like Euskaltel, Masmovil and Yoigo are hoping they can go it alone with their own distinct offers.
