20 Jan 2022

Costa del Sol-based fibre/WiMAX ISP Avatel has reportedly agreed a takeover for SomosFibra, which comprises around 20 smaller operators in southern Spain. According to Expansion, the deal will add around 100,000 customers and 700,000 homes passed to Avatel’s portfolio. Previously, in 2018 Avatel swooped for TV Horadada Group, which serves Murcia and Alicante.

Avatel, which launched back in 2012, bills itself as ‘the sixth optical fibre operator in Spain’. The telco also offers MVNO services via the Grupo MASMOVIL (Yoigo) cellular network.
