20 Jul 2006

More details have emerged of Vodafone Italy’s lawsuit against dominant telco Telecom Italia. Vodafone has filed a suit in Milan calling for EUR525 million in damages due to its rival’s alleged anti-competitive practices. The charges relate to TI’s range of converged fixed-mobile services, marketed under the brand names TIM Famiglia, One Office Solution and Unico. Vodafone says TI illegally shared confidential customer data with its mobile division TIM. On top of the damages it is requesting that competitors be granted the same level of access to TI customer records as TIM has had.
