Telecom Italia fined with 103,7 million euro for abuse of its dominant position in network infrastructure

"Telecom Italy abused, using two distinct behaviours, the dominant position it holds in the provision of wholesale access to the local network and broadband, hindering the expansion of competitors in markets for voice telephony services and broadband internet access. The Autorità Garante della Concorrenza e del Mercato established this, which then warned the company about repeating such behaviours in the future and penalised it with a total fine of 103.794 million Euro" (see AGCM's press release).
