7 Nov 2014

Spanish telecoms regulator the Comision Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia (CNMC) has revealed that turnover from mobile broadband services has for the first time surpassed revenues generated by fixed line broadband. In a blog post highlighting data for the three month period ended 30 June 2014, the regulator noted that in that quarter revenues of around EUR889 million (USD1.11 billion) had been generated by mobile broadband services, up around 10% year-on-year. By comparison, in the same period fixed broadband service revenue totalled some EUR882 million, down from more than EUR900 million in the previous quarter.
