Spain tops 8 million active FTTH lines in September

Thursday 29 November 2018 | 11:13 CET | News
Spain added a further 199,836 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in September to increase the number of active connections to over 8 million at the end of the month, according to the latest official data from communications regulator CNMC. The 2 million year-on-year rise in FTTH lines since September 2017 more than offset the 1.3 million fall in DSL connections, with the latter dropping to just over 4 million at the end of the month.
