Greece’s telecommunications regulator appealed against a court decision that reverses a 1-million-euro fine imposed by the watchdog on Vodafone’s Greek unit.
The regulator also plans to appeal against court decisions reversing fines imposed on cellular operators Cosmote and TIM Hellas, which is now called Wind Hellas, according to a statement from the National Telecommunications and Post Commission. The regulator fined the companies, the country’s three biggest mobile-phone operators, 1 million euros each in March 2006 for breaching competition rules linked to text messages. The three breached regulations when they simultaneously raised prices for short text messages in 2005, the watchdog said.
On a different subject, Ericsson won a Wind order. Ericsson, the world’s largest maker of wireless networks, won an order from Greek telecom operator Wind Hellas. Ericsson will provide network design and system integration, and supply equipment to Wind Hellas, the Stockholm-based company said yesterday in a statement.
