Telecommunication law, case XVII AmA 62/08

August 27th, 2011, Tomasz Rychlicki

The President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection in its decision of 20 December 2007 No. DOK-98/2007 decided that the market practice of Telekomunikacja Polska S.A. based on discriminatory lowering of IP traffic, by actions that lead to a reduction of the quality or the disabling of data transfer, is the practice of restricting competition. Telekomunikacja Polska appealed.

The Court of Competition and Consumer Protection in its judgment of 11 April 2011 case file XVII AmA 62/08 overturned the questioned decision in part. However, the Court did not argue with the President of the OCCP, that Telekomunikacja Polska was quilty of restricting competition.
