Spanish regulator fines Orange for breaching porting rules

Wednesday 4 November 2015 | 09:51 CET | News
Spanish telecoms regulator CNMC has fined Orange Spain a total of EUR 120,000 for breaching rules governing fixed number portability. Specifically, the regulator accused Orange of "repeatedly and unjustifiably" preventing 525 users from changing their fixed line operator between 04 January 2013 and 09 December 2014. Orange has two months to appeal the fine before the country's contentious-administrative courts.
