Orange, Telefonica extend Spanish FTTH access deal

Thursday 22 February 2018 | 12:09 CET | News
Orange Spain has announced an extension to its wholesale access agreement to use Telefonica's network to offer fibre-optic services in areas not reached by its own network. The deal was first revealed last March but dates back to 2016 and covers the non-competitive areas in which Telefonica is required to provide access as well as 66 cities not covered by the wholesale obligations. In a short statement, Orange said the companies had renewed the agreement to "maintain an intense wholesale relationship in the long term" with a view to "increasing the efficiency of deployment and optimisation"
