Munich / Madrid, April 7th, 2003 - The Spanish regulator CMT made a decision at short notice with an important relevance for a quick start of telegate´s DA service in Spain: The existing and only Spanish DA number 1003 of Telefónica has been finally switched off two days ago on Saturday April 5th, 2003. Besides, the former monopolist will be committed to activate an automated recorded message for four months beginning on this day, naming all new DA service providers and numbers. Every working day rd. 800.000 callers on 1003 will then listen to this information. So all Spanish people will be quickly informed about the new services and numbers.

The Spanish market has a yearly volume of roundabout 230 million calls. telegate will then play a relevant role in this market since the beginning.
