Mandate Vinge advised Tele 2 in the largest competition damages case in Sweden

May 27, 2016

Stockholm District Court delivered its judgment today in the largest competition damages case in Sweden to date.

According to the judgment, Telia shall pay damages in the amount of SEK 240 million plus interest to Tele2. The total damages awarded thus currently amounts to approximately SEK 500 million. Notice of appeal must be submitted to Svea Court of Appeal on or before 16 June 2016.

The case relates to damages for alleged abuse of a dominant position by Telia at the beginning of 2000. The alleged abuse consisted of so-called margin squeezing in connection with the provision of resale services for broadband connections via ADSL.
