Cell C Lodges Competition Complaint Against MTN Group Ltd-Reuters
Wednesday, 9 Oct 2013 05:23am EDT 

Reuters reported that Cell C on Wednesday has lodged an antitrust complaint against MTN Group Ltd charging with "discriminatory pricing".

This amounts to discriminatory pricing and is without a doubt anti-competitive when adopted by dominant operators, he said. It was not immediately clear what action, if any, the Pretoria-based Competition Commission would take after receiving the complaint.  Full Article
