In September 2022, Pioneer made a significant investment commitment to 7Play Holdings SLU, an owner and operator of fibre broadband networks in Spain, with the strategic objective of enabling communities in smaller towns and rural areas to access digital services.

Led by a serial entrepreneur with a proven track record and supported by an experienced management team, Pioneer identified an opportunity in 7Play to consolidate the market long-tail in Spain with a buy-and-build platform strategy. With a series of acquisitions completed since the company’s inception in 2021, and an advanced pipeline with opportunity to deploy significant capital, 7Play provides Pioneer with an immediate, scalable platform to build a leading player in Spain’s rural fibre market.
