Thursday 10 September 2015 | 10:35 CET | News
Spanish mobile telephony connections rose by a total of 47,855 lines in May compared to the previous month to reach a total of 50.42 million, around 0.2 percent more than the year-earlier figure. The latest monthly data released by telecoms regulator CNMC revealed that the increase in postpaid lines (79,237) far outweighed the fall in prepaid lines (-31,382). Porting of mobile lines declined to 414,126, around 12.3 percent less than a year ago, with MVNOs again leading the porting figures, adding 78,402 lines.
