Slovak Telecom appeals Sk885 million fine

SLOVAK Telecom has appealed against an Sk885 million (€23.6 million) fine imposed by the antitrust authority (PMÚ), the Pravda daily reported.

According to the PMÚ, Slovak Telecom abused its dominant position on the market by refusing to provide access to local lines to other operators.

Slovak Telecom denies the allegations and has also asked the court to delay application of the verdict, otherwise it must pay the fine by February 14 this year.
