Spanish mobile market confirms growth trend in 2017 as Masmovil outperforms

Thursday 19 April 2018 | 09:13 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer | Background
The Spanish market appears to have recovered strongly, after several years of contraction due to the weak economy and price pressure. Mobile operators remain focused on fixed-mobile bundling, as well as monetising their significant network investments.  An important trend that has helped revenue growth is the move to larger mobile data plans for slightly higher prices, as shown in a recent analysis by Telecompaper.
