Euskaltel and Masmovil top Spain fixed line gains in January

Friday 19 March 2021 | 09:10 CET | News
Spain's operators signed up another 86,000 fibre to the home (FTTH) subscribers in January, a month that registered 160,000 fixed line portabilities, according to the latest official monthly update from regulator CNMC. Active FTTH connections in the country rose to 11.6 million, up around 1.3 million in the year to end of January, clearly offsetting a 0.7 million decline in DSL lines to under 1.8 million. HFC lines dipped to around 2.14 million, bringing the fixed broadband total to 15.77 million, up 500,000 year on year.
