EU unhappy with Spanish broadband move

The European Union telecoms commissioner Viviane Reding is unhappy with the Spanish regulators decision not to force main telco Telefonica to open its network to competition at speeds of over 30 Mbps.


The Telecommunications Market Comission (CMT) has obliged the company to share its network for speeds up to 30 Mbps with its competitors.

But the CMT considers that imposing obligations to indirect access above 30 Mbps could be bad for infrastructure investments since speeds superior to 10 Mbps are still very uncommon in Spain.

Reding told Spanish publication El Economista that the new framework did not go far enough.

"The competitors and consumers are the ones who are paying the price for this situation and high prices because alternative operators cannot compete effectively with Telefonica," she said.

These measures fix the broadband and fibre optic networks regulatory framework which will allow services at 100 Mbps. At the same time it establishes the transition of the Telefnica technical area centres from copper to fibre in order to guarantee investments made by alternative operators and continuity of the services.

One of the CMT's new proposals is the opening up of all Telefnicas broadband channels including civil works, not just fibre, so all the operators can pay to use them, even those of the mobile telephony.
