Spanish FTTH lines up over 140,000 to 5.2 mln in February

Friday 21 April 2017 | 13:51 CET | News
Spain added a total of 142,838 fibre to the home (FTTH) lines in February to increase the number of active connections to 5.2 million at the end of the month, according to the latest report from communications regulator CNMC. Around 59.8 percent of the lines belonged to Telefonica, which now has 3.1 million active connections in the country. The 1.7 million rise in FTTH lines over the past year offset the fall in DSL connections, which declined by 107,000 in February and by 1.3 million over the past 12 months to 6.1 million.
