Opta fines KPN for business discounts

Tuesday 12 January 2010 | 10:34 CET | News
Opta has imposed a fine of around EUR 500,000 on KPN for selectively giving extra discounts on international calls to business clients from 2006 to the beginning of 2008. KPN approached cleints with the promotion "terug naar KPN", or back to KPN, and a discount in addition to other discount schemes. Opta was not notified of these extra discounts nor were they published on the KPN website. According to Opta, KPN recruited about 14 clients with the promotion. The fine was increased after KPN repeated the action. The Dutch operator said it would appeal the ruling.
