Spain's communications regulator CNMC has fined Telefonica a total of EUR 8.5 million for breaches of its wholesale access commitments in a contract with the Basque local government. In January 2016, the Basque government awarded Telefonica part of the tender for the provision of telecommunications services to various public buildings. However, local broadband provider Euskaltel complained that Telefonica's offer could not be replicated by any rival operators in the business segment and the CNMC's probe upheld Euskaltel's claims.
