Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in Spain, 2018: Market Statistics & Analyses -- Spains Telcos Sign More Fibre Sharing Agreements - ResearchAndMarkets.com

December 4, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 4, 2018--The “Spain - Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband - Statistics and Analyses” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Spain’s telecom market is one of the largest in Europe, supported by a population of more than 46 million.

Mobile penetration is on a par with the European average and there remains room for further growth, particularly in the mobile broadband segment which has been supported by continuing investment in infrastructure among operators, with a particular emphasis on 5G.

There is effective competition from four MNOs and a growing number of resellers and MVNOs. This competition, together with regulated roaming and mobile termination rates, has driven down the cost of mobile calls. The market has seen considerable changes in recent years, including the acquisition of Yoigo by Msmovil, by which the latter has become a full-service provider.

Orange Spain and Vodafone Spain have acquired fixed-line operators in a bid to compete more effectively with Telefonica in bundled service offerings. Msmovil, operating under the Yoigo banner, has also become one of the main FttP providers in the country through its own network infrastructure as well as through network share agreements with Telefnica, Vodafone Spain and Orange Spain.
