The German Federal Network Agency has threatened Telefonica with a fine of EUR 600,000 for missing the coverage requirements of the frequency auction in 2015. Telefonica was required to build 40 percent of its 7,600 mobile sites by 30 June 2020, but it has not been able to reach the number. The regulator said that it will fine Telefonica if it does not reach the number of sites required by 31 July.
