Movistar sheds 66,000 mobile clients in January

Wednesday 10 February 2016 | 08:57 CET | News
A recently-announced price hike appears to have cost Movistar dear in January, with Telefonica's brand shedding 66,000 mobile customers in the month, according to the portability figures published by website Xataka Movil. All other operators benefited from Movistar's falling numbers, with Orange adding 23,000 new lines, thanks above all to the figures of its recently-acquired operator Jazztel and its low-cost brands Amena and Simyo. Even Vodafone returned to positive figures for the month, adding 3,400 lines in total thanks to the gains of its subsidiary Ono and low-cost brand Lowi.
