Vodafone CEO Vittorio Colao lashed out at Google in Barcelona, claiming the search giant’s online dominance will (somehow) screw up the mobile market.

Vittorio presented a slide showing Google owning 80% of the online advertising market and said that dominance is something that needs to be looked at,Dow Jones reports:

“With regards to Google, we need to be able to freely deal up and down the value chain. The fact that 80% of the advertising online goes down one funnel is something that should be looked at in the future debate on net neutrality,” he said, adding that the European Commission and FCC should ensure rules are put in place “to enable competition at all levels.”
