Orange Romania wins suspension of fine for abusing dominant position

Friday 6 March 2020 | 12:35 CET | News
Orange Romania won an appeal against the Competition Council's decision from December 2018, when the regulator fined Orange RON 64.92 million (about EUR 13.5 million) for abusing its dominant market position, according to local publication Profit.ro. The competition authority found that, during 2011-2015, Orange Romania limited the access of Simplus Invest to its mobile network, blocking its activity of transmitting commercial messages to or from the telecom operator's customers. Simplus Invest went into insolvency in 2015 as a result of the blocking decision.
