Monday 30 March 2020 | 09:29 CET | News
Spanish regional operator Euskaltel said its maintaining its plans to expand throughout the Spanish territory using the Virgin brand this year in spite of the country's coronavirus lockdown. In a statement, the operator confirmed that it will not be altering the schedule of the commercial launch of its Virgin-branded national services, which is expected for the second quarter of the year, as long as the current end date of Spain's State of Alarm is maintained. The lockdown is currently scheduled to finalise on 11 April, but the situation could well change.
