Spanish telecoms giant Telefonica has reported revenues of EUR9.964 billion (USD11.775 billion) for the three months ended 30 June 2021, down 3.6% year-on-year on a reported basis. Group OIBDA for the quarter under review was EUR13.469 billion, although the group notes that this figure was ‘impacted by special factors’ – notably capital gains from the merger of Virgin Media and O2 UK and the sale of Telxius Towers.

In operational terms, Telefonica reported consolidated mobile accesses of 274.917 million at 30 June 2021, of which 28.165 million were IoT accounts. In addition, the group reported 25.663 million broadband users, 31.396 million fixed telephony accounts and 11.258 million pay-TV subscribers.
