Spain adds another 190,000 FTTH lines in November to hit 6.4 mln

Friday 19 January 2018 | 10:17 CET | News
Spain added a total of 189,591 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in November to increase the number of active connections to over 6.4 million at the end of the month, according to the latest data from communications regulator CNMC. The 1.7 million rise in FTTH lines over the past year more than offset the 1.2 million fall in DSL connections, with the latter totalling 5.2 million, said the watchdog. There are now over 1.2 million more FTTH than DSL lines after the former surpassed the latter in July. HFC lines totalled 2.6 million, flat year on year, bringing the fixed broadband total to 14.3
