Telefonica to appeal against new intra-EU call prices - report

Thursday 28 March 2019 | 10:03 CET | News
Telefonica has decided to lodge an appeal with the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) against new rules capping the cost of intra-EU calls, according to unnamed sources cited by business daily Expansion. The operator has already confirmed that it will be adopting the new price caps set out in the European electronic communications code (EECC) for international calls and texts starting 15 May, but it will also be requesting the annulment of the measure on the grounds that intervening in a market that has been considered competitive sets a dangerous precedent.
