A total of 75.6 percent of Spanish households subscribed to some sort of convergent package including at least fixed and mobile telephony and broadband at the end of the second quarter of 2016, according to a report from communications regulator CNMC. In addition, over a quarter of homes (25.3 percent) subscribed to a quad-play package also including pay-TV, while over a third of broadband subscribers (36.2 percent) have a fibre-optic connection, some 13 percentage points more than a year ago.

The increasing popularity of convergent packages and recent operator price hikes has inevitably led to a rise in the average monthly amount spent by Spanish households, which stood at EUR 68.7 for quad-play packages at the end of June, compared to EUR 62.8 in the year-earlier period, while those subscribing to triple-play packages including fixed and mobile telephony and broadband paid an average of EUR 47.8 at the end of Q2, compared to EUR 46.2 in June 2015.
