Spain added a further 114,794 FTTH lines in August to reach a total of 4.2 million connections, according to the latest report from telecom regulator CNMC. The rise in fibre-optic broadband connections and the 4,728 increase in the number of HFC lines more than offset the 89,858 decline in the number of DSL lines in August. Telefonica continued to dominate the FTTH sector, with 2.8 million lines, or 64.9 percent of the total.
