Spain hit the milestone of 80 percent fibre (FTTP) coverage at the end of 2019, way above the EU average of 34 percent, according to the latest Digital Economy and Society Index (DESI) published by the European Commission. In addition, despite the significant differences between urban and rural areas, rural FTTP coverage in Spain reached 46 percent of households at the end of 2019, significantly above the EU average of 21 percent.
