(Telecompaper) Romania’s Competition Council sanctioned Orange Romania with a fine of approximately EUR 14 million for abusing its dominant position during the period 2011-2015. The fine is higher that the EUR 10 million mentioned in an earlier report from the local media. The competition authority found that the operator limited Simplus Invest’s access to its mobile network by blocking its business transmission of commercial messages to Orange customers or by Orange customers.
