Uber to operate in Spain despite ban

  • San Francisco based online taxi booking company Uber has said it will not cease operations in Spain. As per media reports, the company has been banned from operating its UberPOP service in Spain. Telecom companies have also been ordered to block it. The ban was introduced after a lawsuit was lodged by taxi drivers. However, the company says it will challenge the case in court. The company said in a statement that the unusual measures would be lifted once the company puts its arguments before the court.
