Grupo MASMOVIL has announced that its 5G network now covers more than 340 cities and municipalities across 39 Spanish provinces. 5G access is available via the group’s Yoigo brand, which was acquired from Telia Company in October 2016. That deal allowed MASMOVIL to transition from an MVNO to an MNO, while the Yoigo name was retained as one of a number of sub-brands.
As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, MASMOVIL became the fourth Spanish operator to launch 5G services in September 2020, when its network went live in 15 locations, including Alicante, Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga, Seville and Valencia. The fifth-generation network uses the 3.5GHz band.
In a separate blog post, meanwhile, MASMOVIL has confirmed that it generated revenues of EUR1.93 billion (USD2.35 billion) in 2020 (up 15% year-on-year) and first-quarter revenues of EUR527 million (up 18% y-o-y). The telco ended 1Q21 with 9.7 million mobile subscribers, of which 6.6 million are post-paid, and 2.1 million broadband users. Including wholesale access, it now has a marketable fibre footprint of 26.4 million households. 4G connectivity is available to 98.5% of the population.
