Spain adds 167,000 active FTTH lines in February to reach 7 mln

Tuesday 22 May 2018 | 14:44 CET | News
Spain added a further 167,330 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in February to increase the number of active connections to just shy of 7 million at the end of the month, according to the latest data from communications regulator CNMC. The 1.8 million year on year rise in FTTH lines over the past year more than offset the 1.3 million fall in DSL connections, with the latter totalling 4.8 million at the end of February. HFC lines totalled 2.5 million, flat year on year, bringing the fixed broadband total to 14.5 million, or 31.1 lines per 100 inhabitants.
