Tuesday 13 September 2016 | 10:58 CET | News
Spain added a further 110,890 FTTH lines in July to reach a total of 4.1 million connections, according to the latest report from telecom regulator CNMC. The rise in fibre-optic broadband connections just about offset the 101,219 decline in the number of DSL lines and the 8,010 fall in HFC lines. In total, the number of FTTH lines rose 1.8 million from a year earlier, with the number of DSL lines plummeting by 1.5 million over the same period.
