Vodafone to sue Telecom Italia for €1B

|About: Vodafone Group Plc (VOD)|By:, SA News Editor

Vodafone Group's (VOD) Italian subsidiary will sue Telecom Italia for €1B in a civil action stemming from the latter's alleged abuse of its dominant position in the Italian fixed-line telephone market.

Telecom Italy says its behavior was and is "totally correct," although Italy's competition authority apparently doesn't agree — it fined the company €104M earlier this year, a decision the company will appeal.
