Spanish FTTH lines up 142,000 in June, portabilities up 80% YoY

Tuesday 27 October 2020 | 14:27 CET | News
Spanish operators signed up a further 142,000 fibre to the home (FTTH) subscribers in June as pent-up demand following Covid-19 restrictions saw 262,500 fixed line portabilities, up 80.4 percent year on year. The latest official monthly update from regulator CNMC showed that there were 10.7 million active FTTH connections in the country, up around 1.4 million in the year to end of June, more than offsetting a 900,000 decline in DSL lines to 2.3 million. HFC lines remained steady at around 2.2 million, bringing the fixed broadband total to 15.4 million compared to 14.9 million a year earlier.
