New Market Report: Spain Telecommunications Report Q2 2016
New Fixed Networks market report from Business Monitor International: "Spain Telecommunications Report Q2 2016"
[ClickPress, Mon May 09 2016] The latest data from Spain ' s telecoms regulator, the CNMC , for the end of 2015 shows that fibre continues to grow as the main access technology for broadband internet services. In December 2015 the EC approved the regulator ' s proposal to open up Telefonica's fibre network in Spain. Although BMI welcome s this development, we maintain our view that the regulator needs to strike a balance between encouraging investment in new technologies and ensuring competitive markets as well as universal coverage.
Latest Updates & Industry Developments
In December 2015 the European Commission (EC) approved the Comision Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (CNMC)'s proposal to open up Telefonica's fibre network in Spain. Under the regulator's proposal, Telefonica will be required to share access to its network in all of Spain, except in 34 towns and cities where superfast internet is already being offered by three or more operators. Telefonica has threatened to stop the accelerated rollout of its Spanish fibre optic operations if the proposal is approved.
