Spanish mobile market under pressure in 2012, service revenue drops 11%

Tuesday 9 April 2013 | 17:04 CET | Author: Alejandra van de Roer | Background
Spain's mobile sector contracted sharply in 2012, both in terms of customers (-9%) and service revenues (-11%). The deterioration was due to a combination of effects, including the country's economic crisis, a large clean-up of inactive subscribers by the operators, the withdrawal of handset subsidies and regulation mainly of voice revenues. Below we outline the most important figures based on Telecompaper's database on the Spanish mobile market.
