OTE’s converged plans faces trouble

24 Sep 2007

The National Telecommunications & Post Commission (EETT) has not approved a new retail telephony package announced by incumbent fixed line operator OTE earlier this month. According to the regulator ‘OTE talk’ would lead to a profit margin squeeze for competitors, representing an abuse of OTE’s dominant position in the market. OTE had announced that it would launch new fixed line packages offering unlimited local and national long-distance calls alongside the introduction of an SMS service for fixed line numbers; a new proposed fixed-to-mobile substitution package is still under examination by the EETT.
