The CNMC presents the results of the telecommunications sector for 2016, the year in which Movistar, Vodafone and Orange accounted for more than three quarters of retail revenues.


The telecommunications sector ended 2016 with 24.640 million euros in retail income , according to data now offered by the National Commission for Markets and Competition (CNMC) This figure is almost equal to that of the previous year.

While fixed and mobile broadband and audiovisual services have been growing, revenues associated with fixed and mobile voice services have declined.

During the fourth quarter of 2016, 6,397 million euros were entered for retail services, which is 1.8% more than in the equivalent period of 2015. 42.2% of that income corresponds to Movistar , about 19% went to Vodafone and 17% kept it Orange . This means that the three largest operators in our country agglutinate more than three quarters of the retail income of the sector. The CNMC reveals that the share of the MásMóvil group was 4%.

Other data to be taken into account are the more than 42 million accesses for NGA networks, of which 31.1 million correspond to FTTH; the figure of fixed broadband lines with 30 Mbps speed, which is 54.5%; the 11 million quadruple and quintuple packages; 6.1 million subscribers to pay television; and the 41.4 million mobile lines connected to the internet.

It should also be noted that call traffic over mobile networks marked historical highs in Spain during the fourth quarter of 2016. It was up to the 23.8 billion minutes .
