Telefonica to raise top fibre speed to 1 Gbps in January

Monday 30 November 2020 | 08:54 CET | News
Telefonica confirmed that it intends to increase the maximum speed of its Spanish fibre service to 1 Gbps in January in exchange for a slight price hike. The latest move in the company's "more for more" strategy will see the speed of all Movistar Fusion-branded fibre modalities increase from the current maximum of 600 Mbps to a symmetric (download and upload) speed of 1 Gbps from 12 January 2021, while those on 100 Mbps plans will have their speed tripled to 300 Mbps. The two new speeds of 1 Gbps and 300 Mbps will therefore replace the currently offer of 600 Mbps and 100 Mbps.
