Telecoms regulator backs Tellas complaint against OTE

Greece’s National Telecommunications and Post Commission (EETT) yesterday gave main fixed-line operator OTE telecom 15 working days in which to deliver thousands of telephone lines to alternative provider Tellas.

EETT issued the provisional order after an injunction by Tellas, which claimed delays and refusals by OTE obstructed its capacity to provide the required services to new subscribers. In the framework of the liberalization of telecoms services, subscribers to alternative providers are no longer required to pay a fixed overhead charge to OTE.

EETT said its intervention was deemed necessary in view of the “serious economic and operational problems caused to Tellas by OTE’s behavior.” Applications by Tellas customers “have been pending for a long period of time, which cannot be considered reasonable, giving rise to distrust among its clients and causing damage to its reputation and credibility among the consumer public.”
