Swisscom appeals vs COMCO decision on Post Office bid

Thursday 19 November 2015 | 10:26 CET | News
Swisscom has appealed against a ruling by the Competition Commission (COMCO) and a fine of CHF 7.9 million at the Federal Administrative Court. In its investigation of the 2008 tender for a company network for Swiss Post, COMCO concluded that Swisscom violated the Federal Cartel Act. According to the complaint, other providers were unable to make a competitive bid to the Swiss post office because of the excessively high prices for intermediate inputs. Moreover, the price of Swisscom's bid was inappropriate. According to Swisscom, these allegations of misconduct are not justified.
