Spain hits 7.6 million active FTTH lines in H1

Friday 14 September 2018 | 14:16 CET | News
Spain added a further 153,774 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in June to increase the number of active connections to 7.6 million at the end of H1, according to the latest data from communications regulator CNMC. The 1.9 million year on year rise in FTTH lines over the past year more than offset the 1.3 million fall in DSL connections, with the latter dropping to 4.4 million at the end of June. HFC lines totalled 2.5 million, flat year on year, bringing the fixed broadband total to 14.6 million.
