Vodafone Spain fined EUR 3.1 mln for roaming charges

Tuesday 29 April 2014 | 12:14 CET | News
Spanish competitions regulator CNMC has fined Vodafone Spain a total of EUR 3.1 million for applying "excessive roaming charges", reports El Confidencial. The fine is one of the largest imposed by the CNMC since it absorbed the powers of the now defunct regulator CMT in October last year. The proceedings against Vodafone Spain for failing to respect the Eurotariff in its Red and Base subscription plans were initiated by the CMT in March 2013 and the CNMC has now issued its decision to fine Vodafone for what it described as "very serious breaches" of Spain's General Telecommunications Act.
