On 22 June 2011, the EC fined the Polish telecoms operator Telekomunikacja Polska S.A. (‘TP’) for abusing its dominant position in the Polish telecommunications market. In Poland, Internet operators who want to provide retail broadband Internet access to end-users will usually use TP’s access network, since building an alternative access network is not economically viable. Thus, the operators require certain wholesale broadband access products, which are provided exclusively by TP. The EC found that TP had obstructed the entry of new operators into Polish broadband markets by, inter alia, proposing unreasonable conditions, delaying negotiations, unjustifiably rejecting orders and refusing to provide accurate information to the potential operators. This impeded competition and amounted to an abuse of dominance by TP. The EC ordered TP to cease and desist its anti-competitive conduct, and imposed a fine of €124 million on TP.
