May 2020

Spain continues to have Europe’s most extensive Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH) network, with more than 8 in 10 (80.4%) of premises covered at the end of June 2019, according to the latest fixed broadband update from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation.
Earlier this year, the ministry announced plans to significantly expand the number of areas eligible for broadband subsidies with a view of bringing fiber connections to an additional 1.5 million people in the country. Under its existing program, the aim is to increase superfast broadband coverage to 91.24% of the Spanish population and 75.29% of rural areas by the end of 2021.
