Thursday 23 July 2020 | 09:38 CET | News
A total of nearly 400,000 mobile line numbers were ported in Spain in March, down 35.7 percent on the year-earlier figure due to the temporary suspension of MNP processes ordered by the government. The latest official data from regulator CNMC revealed that the number of active mobile (voice, broadband and M2M) lines came to 54.5 million at the end of March, the vast majority (46 million) with mobile broadband access and including 7 million M2M lines, up 15 percent year on year.
