Euskaltel, Orange agree expansion deal
December 13, 2019
From David Del Valle in Madrid
Basque-Country-based telco operator Euskaltel, owned by UK’s Zegona, has signed an agreement with Orange Spain to use its mobile and FTTH networks to cover the whole territory.
With this move Euskaltel takes a major step in its national expansion since it will enable the telco to offer its convergent services across Spain, covering Orange’s 14 million FTTH homes.
The agreement, which lasts until 2024, will cement Euskaltel’s position as fifth largest operator in Spain behind Movistar, Orange, Vodafone and MásMóvil.
The deal also includes the possibility for Euskaltel to co-invest in the deployment of FTTH along with Orange, saving costs for both operators.
