Telefonica reaches 1 million fibre customers in Spain

Thursday 4 September 2014 | 15:36 CET | News
Telefonica has reached the milestone of 1 million active fibre customers in Spain, having doubled the figure over the past 12 months thanks above all to the success of its Movistar Fusion convergent packages. Telefonica Espana CEO Luis Gilperez Miguel made the announcement during his intervention at the XXVIII telecommunications and digital economy meeting currently taking place in Santander. Gilperez said the investment levels of the five major operators in Spain had remained constant between 2009 and 2013 even though revenues had fallen some 23 percent due to the ongoing Spanish recession.
