On 22 June 2011, Telekomunikacja Polska (TP) was fined €127,554,194 for restricting access to competitors on the broadband market in Poland. The European Commission claims to have found extensive evidence that, from August 2005 to October 2009, TP engaged in a number of practices which made it difficult for competitors to obtain access to the wholesale broadband network. These practices included the imposition of unreasonable contractual conditions, delayed negotiation procedures, rejection of orders on unjustifiable grounds and refusal to provide reliable and accurate information. Commenting on the case, Commissioner Almunia said: “The Commission cannot allow the development of the Internet and of the digital economy to be put at risk by anticompetitive practices”.
