Spanish mobile broadband lines up to 89% penetration

Friday 21 April 2017 | 12:03 CET | News
Spanish mobile broadband lines reached a total of 39.78 million in February, up 6.3 percent year on year and equivalent to 89.3 lines per 100 inhabitants, according to the latest data from telecom regulator CNMC. However, a 125,286 monthly rise in postpay connections was unable to offset a 169,076 fall in prepay lines, meaning there were 43,790 fewer active lines in February. The overall mobile penetration rate increased by 1 percentage point year on year to 110.1 lines per 100 inhabitants.
