Spain: CNMC fines Telefónica over discrimination against competitors

 |  October 29, 2018

The National Commission of Markets and Competition (CNMC) of Spain announced a motion against telecommunications operator Telefónica over alleged discrimination in the servicing of repairs for other operators in wholesale services NEBA, fiber and copper wiring services.

The CNMC has analyzed the period between January 2017 and March 2018 and, based on the data obtained, has found “sufficient evidence” that Telefónica would have breached the non-discrimination obligation imposed by its position as an operator with significant power in the market.

“The obligation of non-discrimination imposed on Telefónica refers to both the quality of the service and the delivery terms and other conditions of supply …”, the CNMC said, justifying the investigation. The CNMC maintains that Telefónica gave better terms and services to its own customers in repair and maintenance than those offered to other operators.
