The MÁSMÓVIL group has exceeded 27 million marketable homes throughout Spain with its fiber optic offer. This figure allows the Group to be the operator with the greatest fiber coverage thanks to its own deployment and the agreements it has with different operators in the Spanish market.
Of the total marketable homes with fiber optics in Spain, around 14.2 million correspond to the MASMOVIL Group’s own network, which has made an extraordinary investment effort to equip itself with the best own networks, both fiber optic and mobile, accumulating an investment in the last 5 years more than 3,000 million euros in these infrastructures -including Euskaltel- and in the corresponding customer facilities.
Fiber in the rural environment and emptied Spain
In addition, in its commitment to keep Spain connected and bring the Internet to rural areas and empty Spain, the MASMOVIL Group has deployed its own fiber optic network in recent years in nearly 1.9M homes in towns with less than 20,000 inhabitants in 800 Spanish municipalities, which demonstrates its commitment to making the Internet a universal right for all.
MASMOVIL’s fiber deployment is based on efficiency and the creation of sustainable wealth. For this reason, it has channeled its investment effort into complementary infrastructures that create value and reduce the digital divide and inequality between territories.
“We are very happy to be the number 1 operator in the Spanish market in different parameters such as customer satisfaction or the operator with the largest number of homes available with fiber optics. In addition, in our commitment to generating a positive impact and reducing the digital divide, we have reached nearly 1.9 million homes deployed with fiber optics in towns with less than 20,000 inhabitants”, he said.

During 2021, the MASMOVIL Group has increased the coverage of its fiber optic network by more than 1M homes, going from 26M at the end of 2020 to more than 27M homes at the end of last year. In addition, the MASMOVIL fiber network continues to be the one that offers the best fixed services in Spain according to the report by the prestigious French consulting firm nPerf, “Barometer of fixed Internet connections in Spain”, corresponding to the first 6 months of the year 2021 .
On the other hand, the MASMOVIL Group has achieved great success in the commercialization of its convergent services, leading the growth of the market uninterruptedly in recent years.
