Spanish regulator cancels Carrefour MVNO licence – Spain

The Spanish telecommunications regulator Comision del Mercado de las Telecommunicaciones (CMT) has stripped Carrefour Movil of its MVNO licence after it failed to renew its licence within the given time limits. A further eight MVNOs – including Metro Red and GlobalCom – have also been affected by CMT’s actions.

According to media reports CMT has cancelled just fewer than 500 mobile licences across the country, in response to MVNOs failure to adhere to the legal requirements of their licences.

CMT are looking to establish fresh procedures to allow the licence to be re-issued to Carrefour Movil in due course.
