Telefonica targets 100% fibre coverage by 2024

10 Jun 2019

In a post on its official blog, Telefonica Espana (Movistar) has revealed that it is targeting 100% fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) coverage by 2024. The blog, which details the telco’s efforts in eliminating the so-called ‘digital divide’ in Spain, notes that towns and villages that are home to fewer than 5,000 inhabitants are still generally reliant on WiMAX or satellite connectivity.

TeleGeography notes that Telefonica Espana already presides over what it claims is the largest FTTH network in Europe; the fibre infrastructure passed 21.8 million Spanish premises at the end of March 2019.
