ALBANY, NY, March 16, 2017: The poor economic scenario induced by the 2008 economic meltdown in Spain resulted in widespread unemployment and lesser disposable incomes. This, in turn, had a prolonged negative impact on its telecom market. After a five-year long recession, the economy is finally showing signs of improving now with GDP growth steadily picking up. Investor confidence has shown improvement and this is boding well for the telecom sector. A new report added by ResearchMoz.us, titled, “Spain - Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses,” throws light on important facets of the market in Spain.

The report finds that Spain leads the charge in the telecoms market in Europe in terms of size. Competition is robust among the four mobile network operators, numerous resellers, and mobile virtual network operators. This coupled with regulation of roaming and mobile termination rate (MTR), has brought down the cost of mobile calls. However, the number of subscribers too has come down since 2011 with customers cancelling multiple SIM card ownership to suit their reduced budgets. 

The market has witnessed many important developments in the recent past such as the acquisition of Yoigo by Másmóvil and the emergence of 900MHz frequencies for mobile broadband use. Investments have been made in network upgrades to underpin LTE and HSPA+ technologies. Besides, MNOs and vendors are also spending on 5G technologies and services. The auction of another spectrum in 2016 has helped operators cater to the massive demand for mobile data.
