Vodafone Spain has filed a new complaint with markets and communications regulator CNMC about Telefonica, accusing the former incumbent of using its dominance in the fibre market to promote its newly-launched O2 brand, reports El Espanol. Earlier this month Telefonica committed to compensating customers who subscribe to O2's fibre offer but live in "non-competitive" parts of the country a maximum of EUR 220. Vodafone believes that such a move is a tactic on Telefonica's part to avoid its obligations as dominant fibre provider without reducing the wholesale price of fibre access.
