Sunday 22 June 2014 | 16:56 CET | News
Dutch regulator ACM has confirmed a fine of EUR 900,000 against KPN for pricing violations in a government tender. The fine was first announced in 2011, for the tender in 2006, but the amount was never disclosed as KPN appealed the regulatory decision. The ACM has now announced the result of the appeal, and the court in Rotterdam confirmed the offence, but lowered the fine to EUR 900,000.
