Spanish portability figures fell over 48% in May

Monday 28 September 2020 | 09:32 CET | News
A total of just under 133,000 mobile line numbers were ported in Spain in May, down 48.2 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 53.96 million at the end of May, down 149,582 thanks above all to the loss of 225,613 prepay lines, partly offset by a 76,031 rise in postpay lines.
