Court cancels TP fine

19 Apr 2011

Poland’s anti-monopoly court SOKiK has cancelled a PLN338 million (USD122 million) fine that was placed on Telekomunikacja Polska (TP Group) four years ago. In 2007 Poland’s regulator ordered TP to pay 3% of its previous year’s revenue for not disclosing costs related to internet services and for failing to offer internet access separately from its fixed line voice telephony services. At the time TP said the regulator had no right to regulate the internet market and it would appeal the fine. ‘From the start we said the mega-fine was unjustified. The internet services were not regulated at the time,’ TP spokesman Wojciech Jablczynski said in a statement.
