The Spanish ICT and digital content sector consolidated its turnaround in 2015, posting a 8.5 percent year on year increase in revenues to EUR 97.93 billion, according to the latest annual update issued by Spain's national observatory for telecommunications and the information society (ONTSI). The result builds on the 1.9 percent increase in revenues posted in 2014, the first year-on-year rise in five years, thanks in part to a 4.2 percent in the number of companies active in the sector to 32,103. The number of employees working in ICT in Spain also rose, by 6.1 percent, to 453,575.
