Orange Spain carries out over 2,000 interventions following snowstorm

Thursday 14 January 2021 | 15:35 CET | News
Orange Spain said nearly 300 of its technicians carried out some 2,000 field interventions in more than 700 base stations to ensure continuity of fixed and mobile services in the wake of Storm Filomena. The snowstorm blanketed most of the country from 09 to 11 January and brought many areas in central Spain to a complete standstill. Engineers had to use vehicles such as tractors and snowmobiles, and even skis and snowshoes on occasion, to reach base stations when access roads became impassable to cars or SUVs.
