The Swedish Market Court (“Market Court”) handed down a ruling in an appeal brought by TeliaSonera, a Swedish network and telecommunication service provider, against the Stockholm district court’s decision to fine the company for an abuse of dominant position. The Market Court upheld the district court’s decision to a large extent but reduced the fine imposed to SEK 35 million because the Market Court found that the abuse was only proven during a limited period of time and on a limited part of the market. The case, which has been pending for 8 years, concerns the market for access to the local loop at the wholesale level to provide ADSL connections to consumers and a so called margin squeezing scheme operated by TeliaSonera between 2000 and 2003.
