Másmovil-Orange relations have always been very good. Yellow operator has always relied on the French operator to use its mobile coverage, managed to do with the excess fiber network Jazztel’s Orange purchase and even signed with them a co-investment agreement to deploy fiber to one million households.
Ties have narrowed even more with the agreement to make Telstra replace coverage umbrella of Movistar by the Orange, change that is already underway, but Másmovil was very smart, getting in addition to Orange allows you to sell fiber under your coverage. and from today it’s now possible to hire fiber connections with Másmovil in Orange coverage area, but only in the mode with 300 Mbps symmetrical.
Másmovil fiber barely reaches 800,000 Spanish homes in five cities and the cost of a display which put the fourth network operator at the height or near their biggest rivals would be enormous, as well as a slow process. This problem was solved the re-gain access to the fiber network of Orange, which already reaches more than nine million households, although at the moment, Másmovil access 5.7 million households.
Populations that now hire Másmovil fiber under cover of Orange are in the provinces of Albacete, Alicante, Almeria, Avila, Badajoz, Barcelona, Burgos, Caceres, Cadiz, Cantabria, Castellón, Ciudad Real, Cordoba, Cuenca, Girona, Granada, Guadalajara, Huelva, Huesca, Jaen, La Rioja, León, Lleida, Lugo, Madrid, Malaga, Murcia, Palencia, Salamanca, Segovia, Sevilla, Soria, Tarragona, Teruel, Toledo, Valencia, Valladolid, Zamora and Zaragoza, although it is expected that listing will be extended for half a year.
Same prices although more limited options
Now Másmovil can already give the battle of convergence at the national level, since it was previously limited to offer an old ADSL in areas where other operators with fiber. Equally, Másmovil offer in areas without own coverage shall be limited to the mode with 300 Mbps fiber, not being possible to hire 50 Mbps fiber.
Such limitation may come from Másmovil offer the fiber connection of 50 Mbps “free” in its convergent offering, paying the user only 19.99 euros per month of the line, in addition to the mobile share. That offer would have left no margin to the operator to replicate it when it makes use of Orange fiber, due to fees to pay for the rental of that line to your partner.
With the limitation of only to hire 300 Mbps symmetrical connection, who is interested in only the connection will pay 44,99 EUR per month, While convergent offer start by the 46,89 euros if we opt for the mobile line with unlimited calling and 1 GB, three euros more if we want to 3 GB or 10 euros more if we want 8 GB.
