Spain adds 1.1 mln FTTH lines in a year to reach 1.8 mln

Friday 29 May 2015 | 10:55 CET | News
New fibre-based connections increased by 127,735 in February, the sixth consecutive month of 100,000-plus accesses, according to the latest monthly data released by telecoms regulator CNMC. Total FTTH accesses reached 1.81 million, over a million more than the year-earlier figure of 695,687, more than compensating for the decline of other broadband technologies such as ADSL, which shed 105,683 lines in February. The total number of fixed broadband lines stood at 12.8 million, a 6.3 percent year-on-year rise, while broadband penetration has risen to 27.5 lines per 100 inhabitants.
