Project name: Spanish Network
Company/client: Telefonica España
Tratos has supplied 20 million Euros worth of telecommunication and optical fibre cable, to Telefonica España to support Spain’s ever-growing fibre-to-the-home technology (FTTH) network.
The Spanish multinational broadband and telecommunications provider, with operations in Europe, Asia, and North, Central and South America, operates globally and is one of the largest telephone operators and mobile network providers in the world.
In a relatively short period, the country’s telecom operators have laid out fibre-optic cables reaching 31 million premises – more than France, Germany, the UK and Italy combined. In the OECD, only Korea and Japan have more.
By 2016, about 63% of Spanish households had access to ultra-fast broadband.
