Spain up to 7.3 million active FTTH lines in April

Wednesday 20 June 2018 | 14:53 CET | News
Spain added a further 150,839 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in April to increase the number of active connections to 7.3 million at the end of the month, according to the latest data from communications regulator CNMC. The 1.8 million year on year rise in FTTH lines over the past year more than offset the 1.3 million fall in DSL connections, with the latter dropping to 4.6 million at the end of April. HFC lines totalled 2.5 million, flat year on year, bringing the fixed broadband total to 14.5 million, or 31.3 lines per 100 inhabitants.
