EUSKALTEL LAUNCHES VIRGIN NATIONALLY ACROSS SPAIN
National Expansion: Euskaltel today announced that it is launching services nationally across Spain under the "Virgin telco" brand, reaching the 85% of the Spanish market where Euskaltel is not present today. This will enable Euskaltel to offer services to over 18 million homes.
Full Quad-Play Service: Virgin telco offers a full quad-play range of telecommunications services including high quality high speed FTTH broadband, data-rich mobile, landline and 4K premium TV.
Value Focused, Innovative Offer: Virgin telco allows customers to select exactly the services they want in order to design their own product bundle, rather than having to take inflexible packages defined by the operator. The result is much better value for customers as they don't have to pay for services they don't really want.
Significant Growth Expected: Euskaltel has announced that under its 2020-25 Business Plan it is aiming to nearly double its revenues by 2025 from €685 million to €1.3 billion, with over €500 million coming from the new Virgin telco service.
Further details on the Virgin telco service launch can be found on the Euskaltel website at: www.euskaltel.com/CanalOnline/investors .
