THE network provider Orange is slashing its costs by 45% to €16.95 per month.
Consumers hope the move will reignite a price war for fast internet access in Spain as it comes during a turbulent period in the Spanish telecoms industry.
Orange, the third largest operator in Spain, is also currently weighing up a bid for Jazztel.
After years of falling company revenues and price wars, there has been increased merger activity with Masmovil and Ibercom recently joining forces.
Earlier this year Vodafone, Spain’s largest operator in Spain after Telefonica, agreed to buy local cable company Ono, putting pressure on Orange to increase its own market share in Spain.
