Spain added a further 146,295 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in August to increase the number of active connections to 7.8 million at the end of the month, according to the latest data from communications regulator CNMC. The 2 million year on year rise in FTTH lines since August 2017 more than offset the 1.3 million fall in DSL connections, with the latter dropping to 4.2 million at the end of the month. HFC lines totalled 2.4 million, down around 150,000 year on year, bringing the fixed broadband total to 14.6 million, or 31.3 lines per 100 inhabitants.
