12 Jun 2013

Colombian anti-trust watchdog the Superintendency of Industry and Commerce (SIC) has ruled in favour of Tigo in its case against its Mexican-backed rival Claro, regarding irregularities in number porting. Local news portal Portafolio writes that SIC has ordered Claro to pay Tigo COP908 million (USD477,000) in damages for anti-competitive behaviour. Claro agents were found to have acquired Tigo SIM cards, which were then activated and ported to the Claro network before being sold on to users.
