Telefonica on Monday was fined €500,000 for two breaches of Spanish competition rules.
The CNMC (Comision Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia), said the incumbent operator failed to notify it of the terms and conditions of new Internet and TV packages. As the dominant player in Spain's broadband market, Telefonica is required to do this at least one month before it begins marketing new price plans.
Telefonica is also in trouble for blocking access to premium SMS numbers operated by messaging platform provider NVIA.
The telco was originally sanctioned for blocking 26 premium SMS numbers and ordered to lift its restrictions. However, Telefonica was found to have only permitted access to 15 of them, and continued to block the remaining 11.
In a statement, the CNMC described the infractions as "very serious", and levied a €250,000 fine on Telefonica for each one.
