Monday 23 June 2014 | 11:10 CET | News
Fierce competition has resulted in the average amount spent by Spanish households on mobile telephony services falling by 13.7 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared to a year earlier. Data released by Spain's telecoms regulator CNMC revealed that the average monthly postpay bill came in at EUR 15.70 compared to EUR 18.20 in the same quarter of 2012. The average amount spent on mobile broadband services saw an even more significant fall of 40.0 percent to EUR 7.10 per month, while monthly spend on flat-rate voice and mobile broadband deals declined by 27.8 percent to EUR 16.30.
