Vodafone Spain strikes deal with  MásMóvil for fibre rollout

Vodafone España  has struck an agreement with alternative telco MásMóvil to share fibre infrastructure across up to 1.9 million homes over the next four years.

Vodafone said the deal would enhance the optimisation and efficiency of the use of fibre infrastructure in Spain. It said that the deal would enable to increase its cable and fibre footprint. At the end of June the company offered high-speed fibre-based broadband to 20.9 million premises, of which 10.3 million were via its own or shared infrastructure.

For MásMóvil, the agreement will make an additional 942,000 homes addressable by the end of the year, taking its total addressable footprint to 5.4 million premises, exceeding its year-end objective of 5.1 million.

Vodafone España  CEO António Coimbra said that the agreement would “contribute to optimising and rationalising the use of fibre networks in Spain, which will enable us to offer ultra-high-speed broadband services to our customers in a more efficient way”.

MásMóvil CEO Meinrad Spenger said that he hoped the deal would be “the start of a fruitful partnership for both” and that extending its fibre network would allow it to extend “an excellent service” to a greater number of customers.
