The Spanish Telecoms Sector Aims To Liberalize The Fiber Market For Up to 67% Of The Population

The regulator for Spain’s telecommunications sector, the CNMC, has consulted the operators on the new regulation for the broadband market, ahead of further consultation with the European Commission. The new regulation is expected to be approved next summer at the earliest. The CNMC is proposing greater liberalization in the fiber market, which involves increasing the number of cities where it considers there is sufficient competition and, thus, where there is no need to share the network at regulated prices.
