Spanish mobile numbers soon to begin with a 7

Spanish mobiles have always begun with the number 6, but the numbers are now virtually used up, with only 25% of the 100 million numbers left to be allocated. A new allocation of 80 million mobile phone lines has therefore been announced by the Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Commerce, all of which will begin with a 7. Not the least consideration in the new range is the increasing use of mobile internet devices, increasing the requirement for lines exponentially. Of the 6xx numbers currently in use, Movistar has 29%, Vodafone 20.6%, Orange 19%, Yoigo 2%, and 2% with Virtual Mobile Operators at 2%.  El Dia
