Iliad loses fight to block WINDTRE-Fastweb 5G network deal

11 Jan 2021

An Italian regional court has dismissed a request by the country’s smallest cellco, Iliad, to block a 5G network sharing partnership between WINDTRE and Fastweb which was unveiled in June 2019. French-owned Iliad filed a complaint against the tie-up in January 2020, arguing that the deal would restrict competition. Reuters reports the court as finding that Iliad did not have the right to ask for the annulment of a commercial agreement between two private companies.
