CNMC to press for more regulation of 902 numbers

Wednesday 1 November 2017 | 09:19 CET | News
Spain's communications regulator CNMC has proposed increasing regulation of customer services numbers using the 902 prefix. Calls to 902 numbers are supposed to be affordable but aren't included in unlimited calls bundles offered by operators, with customers often having to pay up to 50 eurocents a minute for mobile calls to what are described as basic rate numbers. In fact, while the average revenue per minute earned by operators for calls from mobile to fixed numbers is around 8 eurocents, in the case of 902 calls the amount rises to 48 eurocents per minute, said the CNMC.
