Spain ported 8.8 mln fixed and mobile lines in 2020

Tuesday 23 February 2021 | 10:58 CET | News
A total of 8.8 million fixed and mobile numbers were ported in Spain in 2020, according to official figures from telecommunications regulator CNMC. The fixed segment saw 2.1 million changes of operator, rising to 6.8 million mobile numbers, with Masmovil and the country's MVNOs (above all Digi) attracting the most connections from rivals. The overall figure was down on the 9.6 million numbers ported in 2019 but was still very high when account is taken of temporary bans on portability imposed at the start of the Covid-19 outbreak.
