Telecable has become the latest regional division of Euskaltel Group – itself part of Grupo MASMOVIL – to launch a rural 5G home broadband internet service. Telecable’s new service offers connection speeds of up to 150Mbps under the ‘Combi Yes’ banner for rural communities in the autonomous region of Asturias in northwest Spain. Telecable says the fixed wireless 5G service targets 47 scattered settlements with ‘nearly 17,000’ homes where fibre networks do not reach due to the mountainous terrain of the region. Combi Yes packages cost from EUR34 (USD37.3) per month, including Wi-Fi 6-based connectivity for up to 32 devices simultaneously, with options for bundling mobile voice/data services.

Telecable adds that 97% of Asturian households can now access its high speed internet via either ‘Fibra Max’ fixed network services or Combi Yes.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, last month Euskaltel launched 5G-based rural internet services in two other northern Spanish autonomous regions – the Basque Country (Euskadi) and Navarre – under the ‘Hegan’ banner, targeting about 40,000 unserved homes in the regions.
