Guatemala's Superintendency of Telecommunications (SIT) has filed a complaint with the country's public prosecutor accusing Telefonica of launching its Tuenti MVNO without an operator licence, reports local daily Prensa Libre.

Telefonica officials replied that they were unaware of the complaint and that the company's lawyers were looking into the matter.
