Amena looks for dispensation

7 Apr 2004

Spanish wireless operator Amena has appealed to the country’s regulator – the CMT – to be allowed to charge more than its rivals for terminating MMS on its network. Amena argues that since it does not benefit from the same economies of scale as its larger rivals – Vodafone and Telefónica Moviles – it should be allowed to charge more than they do. In spring 2003 Telefónica and Vodafone reached an agreement in principal to charge each other symmetrical termination fees, although the document stopped short of specifying an exact tariff.
