December 4, 2023
From David Del Valle in Madrid
The Spanish Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by infrastructure provider Cellnex and ruled that the company will have to pay a €13.7 million fine imposed by the regulator CNMC for abuse of a dominant position in the DTT market.
The ruling brings the matter to an end after a decade in the courts since it was started in 2012.
Cellnex, former Abertis Telecom, was accused of hindering competition in the DTT distribution market as a result of its dominant position.
