Spain adds another 129,000 FTTH lines in August to hit 5.8 mln

Monday 23 October 2017 | 10:11 CET | News
Spain added a total of 128,710 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in August to increase the number of active connections to over 5.8 million at the end of the month, according to the latest data from communications regulator CNMC. The 1.6 million rise in FTTH lines over the past year more than offset the 1.2 million fall in DSL connections, meaning the overall footprint of active FTTH lines (5.8 million) is now well ahead of the DSL equivalent (5.5 million), said the watchdog. HFC lines fell by 3,206 in August to 2.6 million, flat year on year, bringing the fixed broadband total to 14.1 million
