Spanish mobile market continues recovery, Orange overtakes Movistar as biggest operator

Friday 23 September 2016 | 10:13 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer, Marion ter Welle | Background
The Spanish mobile market showed more signs of recovery in the second quarter of 2016 with the total service revenue improving by 3.1 percent in the last quarter, according to the latest figures from Telecompaper. The consolidation of the past year has helped push Orange ahead of Movistar as the biggest provider of mobile SIMs, and Vodafone is not far behind. Masmovil is hoping its consolidation of the low end of the market and introduction of new converged offers will help it take share from the big three.
