SOFIA (Bulgaria), December 20 (SeeNews) – Bulgaria’s competition regulator said on Wednesday it fined telecommunications operator Mobiltel, as the legal successor of cable operator Blizoo Media and Broadband (Blizoo), over unfair competition.
The Commission for Protection of Competition (CPC) has imposed a fine of 87,270 levs ($52,850/44,620 euro) on Mobiltel, the regulator said in a statement.
Mobiltel acquired Blizoo in July 2015. In April 2017, Mobiltel absorbed the company, retaining the brand.
According to the CPC, in 2012 Blizoo offered 12- and 18-month contracts for satellite TV and broadband Internet. The contracts included a free promotional package of sports channels, which were then removed by Blizoo less than six months after the contracts were signed, without the knowledge of the company’s clients.
In May 2013, Blizoo started offering a new package of sports channels, which included the same channels as the promotional one, but required clients to pay an additional fee for access.
Mobiltel, which operates on the Bulgarian market under the Mtel brand, is a unit of Telekom Austria.
