A fifth of Spanish users spend EUR 125/mth on telecoms

Thursday 16 March 2017 | 14:37 CET | News
Spaniards currently spend an average of around EUR 75 a month on telecommunications services, including fixed and mobile broadband and pay-TV, reports El Economista, citing research by Fintonic. The average monthly spend has risen by 5 percent over the past year and is set to rise further in view of recent price hikes announced by the country's major operators. Although 20 percent of Spanish users spend barely EUR 40 a month on telecommunications services, around a fifth pay over EUR 125, said the report.
