Spanish FTTH lines surpass DSL lines for first time

Wednesday 20 September 2017 | 10:10 CET | News
Spain added a total of 107,712 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in July to increase the number of active connections to over 5.7 million at the end of the month, according to the latest data from communications regulator CNMC. The 1.6 million rise in FTTH lines over the past year offset the 1.2 million fall in DSL connections and meant active FTTH lines (5.7 million) overtook DSL lines (5.6 million) for the first time, said the watchdog. HFC lines fell by 24,000 in July to reach to 2.6 million, flat year on year, bringing the fixed broadband total to 14.0 million at the end of July.
