Spain tops 15 mln active fixed broadband lines in July

Friday 27 September 2019 | 10:55 CET | News
Spain hit 15.0 million active fixed broadband lines for the first time in July, up 3 percent from 14.6 million a year earlier, according to the latest data from regulator CNMC. The rise was above all due to a 1.8 million year on year rise in the number of fibre to the home (FTTH) lines to 9.5 million on 31 July, offsetting a 1.2 million decline in DSL lines to 3.0 million. HFC lines totalled 2.3 million, down around 167,000 year on year.
