Telefonica's new O2 brand in Spain has reduced the price of its launch convergent (fibre plus mobile) offering in "non-competitive" parts of the country from EUR 58 to EUR 50 a month, reports El Espanol. The price change comes after communications watchdog CNMC adjusted its replicability rules, allowing the operator to reduce its price for a mobile line plus a landline with unlimited national calls and symmetric fibre broadband at 100Mbps. The cost of the plan in the 66 cities deemed "competitive" by the watchdog remains EUR 45 a month.
