Orange attacks O2 in court

The Orange mobile operator lost its appeal to the Bratislava district court to issue a preliminary ruling that would halt O2's advertisements on calling for a crown, the Sme daily wrote on November 14.

Orange says O2 is misleading its customers, because calling through its network is not always cheaper than the competition offer’s.

The court turned down Orange's request, arguing that O2 would suffer damages that would be disproportionate to the protection demanded by Orange.
