EU seeks increased fixed line competition

20 Jun 2006

The EU Commission for Information Society and Media has sent a letter to the Federal Network Agency urging the regulatory body to do more to tackle Deutsche Telekom’s dominant position in Germany’s fixed line telephony market. The German giant controls an estimated 94% of the country’s main lines in service, and the letter warns that the regulator must impose more effective competition remedies to avoid excessive prices being charged by DT.
