Telefonica Spain shuts down 1,000 ADSL exchanges in 5 years

Monday 23 August 2021 | 10:59 CET | News
Telefonica said it has closed a total of over 1,000 of its ADSL exchanges in Spain in the five years since its first copper plant was shut down. The company last year accelerated plans to phase out copper plants that are no longer in use due to the rapid expansion of its FTTH network and as part of its environmental goals. Since the beginning of its closure plan, the company said it has dismantled some 65,000 tons of cable, recycled 7,140 tons of electronic waste and reused over 128,000 network cards.
