BMI View: The latest data from Spain's telecoms regulator, the CNMC, for the end of 2015 show that fibrecontinues to grow as the main access technology for broadband internet services. In December 2015, theEC approved the regulator's proposal to open up Telefónica's fibre network in Spain. Although BMIwelcomes this development, we maintain our view that the regulator needs to strike a balance betweenencouraging investment in new technologies and ensuring competitive markets as well as universalcoverage. Zegona and MasMóvil are competing to become Spain's fourth major operator, which must be aconverged player to be relevant against the three national actors. BMI believes that consolidation amongstthe smaller players, adding Euskaltel, is the best way forward in the long term.Latest Updates And Industry Developments

- In March 2016, it was reported that TeliaSonera and Zegona had entered exclusive talks about the saleof Yoigo in the Spanish market. No financial details were released.

- In December 2015, the European Commission approved the Comisión Nacional de los Mercados y laCompetencia (CNMC)'s proposal to open up Telefónica's fibre network in Spain. Under the regulator'sproposal, Telefónica will be required to share access to its network in all of Spain, except in 34 towns andcities where superfast internet is already being offered by three or more operators. Telefónica hasthreatened to stop the accelerated rollout of its Spanish fibre optic operations if the proposal is approved.

- In 2015 (latest data), fibre-to-the-home connections rose by 155,000, surpassing 3.1mn. Most of thesebelong to Movistar. Total broadband lines reached 13.18mn in December 2015, with Vodafone Españagaining a net total of 182,000 lines, Movistar gaining 76,000 and Orange España 1.79mn (a figure thatincludes the broadband customers served by JazzTel whose acquisition by Orange was finalised in late2014).

- We forecast only gradual growth in the number of mobile subscriptions, which are now expected to reach51.218mn by 2020. However, 3G and 4G service uptake will be much more vibrant, with 40.615mn 3G/4G subscriptions by 2020 accounting for 79.3% of the market.
