The Regional Administrative Court of Lazio, the main Italian administrative court of first instance, has dismissed Open Fiber's appeal against the decision of antitrust watchdog AGCM to green light the Flash Fiber broadband joint venture set up by Telecom Italia (TIM) and Fastweb, reports Corriere delle Comunicazioni. The regulator closed its probe into the JV in April 2018 after accepting commitments made by the operators to avoid possible restriction of competition in the country's wholesale, retail broadband and ultra-broadband markets.
