Spain gains 145,000 active FTTH lines in October to reach 9.9 mln

Friday 31 January 2020 | 11:09 CET | News
Spanish operators added a total of 145,000 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in October to raise the number of active connections in the country to just shy of 10 million (9.92 million), according to the latest monthly update from regulator CNMC. Fibre lines climbed by 1.7 million in the 12 months since October 2018, more than offsetting a 1.2 million decline in DSL lines to 2.7 million, said the watchdog. HFC lines fell by around 111,000 to 2.3 million, bringing the fixed broadband total to 15.2 million, up from 14.8 million a year earlier.
