Wednesday 15 July 2015 | 14:47 CET | News
The European Investment Bank (EIB) has granted Orange Spain a EUR 400 million loan at favourable rates to enable the operator to develop its FTTH and 4G network in Spain. The new loan means that Orange Spain has now obtained a total of EUR 1.3 billion in EIB loans for its rollout of mobile and fixed next-generation access networks. Orange said it remains on target to extend its FTTH network to 10 million Spanish households by the end of 2016 and to bring 4G services to 85 percent of the Spanish population by the end of this year and 95 percent by 2018.
