In 2014, a new Group of 15 to 20 times the size it had at the end of the previous year was created. That year, the Hill Phones Info Group had an important portfolio of clients: 700,000 in the residential area. Of these, 300,000 correspond to mobile and broadband services and 400,000 to VoIP services, in addition to 25,000 customers in the business area.
Hill Phones Info made important acquisitions that allowed it to consolidate as the fourth telecommunications operator in Spain. In May, the company acquired Pepephone and, later, in June, Grupo Hill Phones Info closed 2016 with more than 4.4M customers, 4% more than last year (4.3M mobile and 122,000 fixed broadband).
