Wednesday 5 July 2017 | 10:40 CET | News
Spain added a total of 137,523 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in May to increase the number of active connections to 5.5 million at the end of the month, according to the latest report from communications regulator CNMC. The 1.7 million rise in FTTH lines over the past year offset the 1.2 million fall in DSL connections, said the watchdog. Total fixed broadband lines came to 13.9 million at the end of May, with broadband penetration rising to 30.0 lines per 100 inhabitants, up from 28.8 a year earlier.
