Regulatory Changes and Broadband Adoption Create Opportunities for Alternative Operators in Spain
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Increased adoption of broadband and regulatory changes in Spain will create new opportunities for alternative operators in the fixed broadband, IPTV and VoIP sectors, according to a new report from Pyramid Research (www.pyr.com).
Spain: Regulatory Changes Drive Telecom Market Growth Despite Recession offers a precise profile of the country's telecommunications, media and technology sectors based on proprietary data from Pyramid's research in the market. It provides a detailed competitive analysis of both the fixed and mobile sectors, tracks the market shares of technologies and services and monitors the introduction and spread of new technologies.
"In 2012, the Spanish government and the regulator, the Telecommunications Market Commission (CMT), adopted a number of measures to boost competition and encourage investments in telecom infrastructure despite the economic problems that the country is currently experiencing," says Pyramid Research Analyst, Dr. Ewa Romaniuk-Calkowska. That includes further cuts in mobile termination rates, new portability regulations, changes in the wholesale prices for broadband and unbundling of the copper pair. Alternative operators are taking advantage of the new regulation with regard to local loop unbundling and wholesale rates to increase their presence outside of the large cities and densely populated areas. They offer very competitive prices that resonate well with price-conscious customers. "For instance, Jazztel rates for ADSL starts at $19.60 with a 10 percent promotional discount and the guarantee that the price will not increase for the next two years," she explains.
