Spain tops 10 million FTTH subscriptions in November

Thursday 27 February 2020 | 15:21 CET | News
Spanish operators added a further 129,707 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in November to raise the number of active connections in the country to over 10 million (10.05 million), according to the latest monthly update from regulator CNMC. Fibre lines climbed by 1.6 million over the 12-month period to the end of November, more than offsetting a 1.2 million decline in DSL lines to 2.6 million, said the watchdog. HFC lines fell by around 120,000 to 2.3 million, bringing the fixed broadband total to 15.2 million, up from 14.8 million a year earlier.
