Recent news[edit]

Jazztel is currently growing customer base and EBITDA. As of the end of the first quarter of 2010 Jazztel had 680,000 customers and had grown 58% from a year before. Jazztel grew its EBITDA from €5,900,000 in first quarter 2009 to €15,700,000 in the first quarter of 2010.

In September 2014, it was agreed that Orange España would acquire Jazztel for a fee of €3.4 billion.[2]

Strategy[edit]

Jazztel's competitive strategy consists in relying in its fiber-optic network combined with the use of Telefonica's copper lines for terminations. Jazztel's growth is mainly due to the sales of ADSL services but the company also resells TV and mobile services.
