EU suspects internet companies of anti-competitive behaviour
News Date: 11th July 2013

The European Union's executive has carried out unannounced inspections on companies providing internet connectivity across the bloc, due to concerns that they are abusing their dominant market positions in violation of EU rules, it announced Thursday.

The European Commission is scrutinizing telecommunications companies that provide wholesale services, allowing internet providers to connect to all possible web destinations.

"This service is crucial for the functioning of the internet and for end users' ability to reach internet content with the necessary quality of service, irrespective of the location of the provider," the commission wrote.

Anti-competitive behaviour can restrict market access and affect the prices that consumers pay for services.

The commission did not name the companies or countries involved.
