Spain's CNMC confirms 40% cut in mobile termination rates

Tuesday 30 January 2018 | 10:27 CET | News
Spain's communications watchdog CNMC has confirmed its decision to drastically cut the wholesale mobile rates charged by MNOs and full MVNOs to rival operators to terminate calls on their networks. The regulator last year proposed slashing rates from EUR 1.09 to 0.70 eurocents a minute in 2018 and then to 0.66 eurocents in 2019 and to 0.64 eurocents from 01 January 2020, over 40 percent less than the current rate. The proposal has now been approved European Commission and Spain's industry and economic ministries.
