Spanish mobile portability figures returned to pre-Covid levels in June

Tuesday 27 October 2020 | 13:56 CET | News
Spanish mobile portability figures returned to pre-Covid 19 levels in June, with a total of 606,000 users changing their operator, up 9.4 percent year on year, according to the latest official data from regulator CNMC. The sharp rise in changes of operator came shortly after the government decided to ease restrictions on mobile and fixed number portability procedures imposed during the first wave of the pandemic, resulting in just under 133,000 mobile line portings in May, down 48.2 percent year on year.
