Galicia's R to switch from Vodafone to Orange - report

Tuesday 26 January 2016 | 08:50 CET | News
Spanish regional cable operator Euskaltel, operating in the Basque Country, is in talks to switch the mobile network of its recently acquired Galician subsidiary R from Vodafone to Orange, according to unnamed sources cited by business daily Expansion. The change of network would follow Euskaltel's own move from Vodafone to Orange in 2014 and would allow the Basque operator to pay back some of the EUR 222 million in damages it was ordered to pay to Orange in 2012 for terminating an earlier deal in 2006.
