Bezeq faces sanction over abuse of monopoly position

Thursday 8 March 2018 | 14:55 CET | News
Bezeq announced that the Israel Antitrust Authority is considering slapping it with a ILS 30.95 million fine for abusing its monopoly position. Bezeq noted that the authority said there is evidence indicating that the company made apparent use of its market strength as a result of its control of the passive infrastructure. The authority says Bezeq also "placed obstacles" in the way of new players wanting to use the company's passive infrastructure in order to compete on services to consumers.
