Numericable/SFR lose appeal over incumbent duct access

Monday 19 June 2017 | 17:35 CET | News
SFR has lost an appeal against Orange in a case originally brought to court by Numericable against France Telecom over ducts access, in which the operator was seeking approximately EUR 3.5 billion in damages and interest from the incumbent, reports La Tribune. Filed in 2010, the lawsuit was first judged in 2012 by the Paris commercial court, which ruled against Numericable. The ruling has now been confirmed in appeal and forces SFR to pay Orange's legal cost, amounting to around EUR 300,000.
