Commission asks Court of Justice to fine Portugal over exclusion of companies from providing universal service

Press Releases: 22/03/2012
The European Commission has asked the European Court of Justice to impose a fine on Portugal because it has not respected a 2010 Court judgment requiring it to follow EU telecoms rules when deciding who should provide universal service in Portugal. The Commission is suggesting a lump sum of €38 984/day and a daily penalty payment of €7 571 until the obligations are fulfilled.
