Telefonica disconnects Spanish MVNO Ocean's

Wednesday 20 June 2018 | 14:42 CET | News
Telefonica has disconnected Spanish MVNO Ocean's from its fixed line networks due to an accumulation of unpaid debts dating back to 2015, reports ADSL Zone. Ocean's has been informing customers that its ADSL and fibre-optic networks have been temporarily cut due to a service failure, with 4G mobile services also affected even though the company has a wholesale contract with Orange. The report adds that Spain's communications and competition regulator CNMC authorised Telefonica to cease providing wholesale services to Ocean's in a decision dated 25 April 2018.
