Regulator slashes Telefonica's wholesale ADSL prices by 18%

Friday 31 January 2014 | 14:36 CET | News
Spain's telecoms regulator CNMC has announced a significant 18 percent reduction in the price payable by rival operators for wholesale access to Telefonica's ADSL network. The measure relates to tariffs for indirect access services, known as GigADSL and ADSL-IP, through which Telefonica's competitors offer a wide range of ADSL services across Spain. According to the CNMC, some 673,323 lines, around 5.5 percent of broadband connections in Spain, are affected by the measure. The regulator justified the decision, which follows a reduction of around 14 percent applied in 2012, on the grounds that technological advances have enabled Telefonica to offer these services at lower rates. 

In addition, the CNMC explained that for the first time the new wholesale broadband access service known as NEBA (New Broadband Ethernet Service) was used to evaluate the cost of providing indirect access, and will form the basis of all future calculations.
