Telefonica to challenge Telecom Argentina-Cablevision merger

Wednesday 25 July 2018 | 10:15 CET | News
Spanish telecommunications giant Telefonica has lodged an appeal with Argentina's commerce department against the 29 June decision to green light the merger of rivals Cablevision and Telecom Argentina on grounds of unfair competition. "Telefonica has already started the necessary legal action to fight the decision, which we consider unjust and discriminatory," said Telefonica Argentina in a statement, adding that "we are assessing all the international tools at our disposal to defend our rights."
