CNMC fines Vodafone Spain EUR 600,000 for preventing porting

Wednesday 4 December 2013 | 09:46 CET | News
The Spanish regulator CNMC has dismissed an appeal lodged by Vodafone Spain against the EUR 600,000 sanction imposed on the operator in 2012 for repeatedly preventing customers' telephone number portability requests in favour of Telefonica. The regulator thus upholds the decision issued in February 2012 by the former telecoms regulator CMT, now absorbed into the CNMC, which followed a complaint from Telefonica about Vodafone's actions during the period December 2008 to January 2012.
