Spain regulator orders Orange to give MasMovil 4G access

Tuesday 5 May 2015 | 09:38 CET | News
Spain's telecoms regulator CNMC has ordered Orange Spain to give rival operator MasMovil temporary access to its 4G network within the next ten days after accusing the network service provider of incurring in a "clear breach" of a contract signed in May 2013. Under the terms of that contract, Orange committed to providing a wholesale 4G service within a "reasonable" timeframe. However, after Orange failed to provide a complete wholesale offer based on 4G technology, MasMovil proceeded to request the CNMC's intervention in November 2014.
