Regulator gets complaint about Omnitel's acquisition by Teo

Wednesday 21 October 2015 | 09:58 CET | News
The Lithuanian industry group of cable operators has appealed to the Competition Council regarding the intention of fixed operator Teo to acquire 100 percent of mobile operator Omnitel, reports Vz.lt. They ask that the deal should be evaluated in terms of the increase in market share. The regulator has also been asked to check whether TeliaSonera complies with obligations imposed on it earlier by the competition watchdog. Both Teo and Omnitel are controlled by the TeliaSonera group.
