FTTH is growing fast in Spain, now reaching 3.1 million connections at the end of 2015, doubling its number year-on-year, according to the latest figures from the CNMC. Movistar is leading with a market share of 71.3 per cent.
Total fixed broadband connections amounted to 13.1 million, up 4 per cent, thanks to the development of fibre optic networks, whereas ADSL lost 1.3 million lines.
As of the end of 2015, Movistar (with a share of 44.09 per cent) was the market leader in Spain’s fixed broadband market followed by Orange (16.27 per cent), Ono (12.31 per cent), Jazztel (12.21 per cent) and Vodafone (10.14 per cent) with other providers reaching a combined share of 4.98 per cent.
