France Telecom SA and Vivendi SA Receive EUR 183 Million Fine; Bouygues SA to Seek Damages-Reuters

Thursday, 13 Dec 2012 07:33am EST 

Reuters reported that France Telecom SA's Orange and Vivendi SA's SFR have been fined EUR 183 million for distorting competition from 2005-08 with plans that allowed unlimited calls between subscribers to the same operator. Orange owner, France Telecom, was fined EUR 117 million, while Vivendi SA's SFR must pay EUR 66 million for offering plans that disadvantaged the smallest operator, Bouygues SA's Bouygues Telecom. The decision stemmed from a complaint filed in October 2006 by Bouygues SA, which was facing higher call termination costs, which operators pay each other each time a person makes a call from one network to another. France Telecom SA stated that it will exercise its right to appeal in the courts and added that the fine had been anticipated in its accounts. A spokesman for SFR said it was considering its options. Bouygues SA stated that it is reading the decision in detail and will ask for damages for the harm.
