Euskaltel to expand into Leon using R brand

Tuesday 6 June 2017 | 08:56 CET | News
Basque cable operator Euskaltel is preparing to expand into its services into the northern Spanish territory of Leon using its R brand, reports La Voz de Galicia, citing R chief executive Alfredo Ramos. The Basque company acquired Galician cable provider R for EUR 1.19 billion in November 2015 and has since purchased Telecable Asturias for EUR 686 million with a view to creating a powerful regional operator in the north of Spain. The expansion into Leon will be via the fibre services of an unnamed third operator, said Ramos, without revealing a specific timeframe.
