Mobile operators up in arms over price controls

10 Jun 2003

UK mobile operators Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile have launched separate but related judicial review challenges against a Competition Commission decision made in January this year to cut the cost of cellular calls in half over the next three years. Operators fear the initiative will cost them upwards of GBP2 billion in revenues and are fiercely contesting the Commission’s findings, with John Swift QC, legal representative for T-Mobile, calling them ‘savage’ and ‘illegitimate and unlawful’.
