With the advent of the new year, two of Spain’s main telcos will increase rates for their premium convergent packages, including pay-TV.

movistar plataforma 13 december 2017As consumers continue to demand more connectivity and better entertainment, Spanish telcos are improving their offerings, but also increasing their prices.

After carrying out five rate increases during 2017 across various packages, Telefónica’s Movistar will again raise the price of its quintuple-play offering with IPTV Fusion+ by €5 per month in February. In addition, its non-TV packages with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) will increase by €2 starting 5 January.

Along with the increase of Fusión+ prices, Movistar has promised to double bandwidth (from 50Mbps to 100Mbps and from 300Mbps to 600Mbps across, depending on the package) and add 2GB of mobile data to each line.

A similar move has also been unveiled by Orange. Starting on 25 February, the French telco will increase its prices by €2 or €5 per month, depending on the package. The rise will only be applied for the Love offerings, Orange premium convergent packages with pay-TV, mobile and broadband.

For now, Vodafone, the third main player in Spain’s telecom market, hasn’t announced a similar move, but analysts from the Organización de Consumidores y Usuarios (OCU) believe the British company will eventually mimic its competitors’ strategies.
