Proceedings against T-DSL discontinued - competitors disappointed

After Telekom announced its new, more expensive tariffs a few days ago, the RegTP promptly replied. This has announced that it will discontinue the procedure opened due to suspected abuse of Deutsche Telekom's DSL connections.

The reason given for this is the significantly higher monthly costs and provision fees for T-DSL as part of the new tariffs, which no longer justifies the dumping allegations made by competitors. However, they see the discontinuation of the proceedings as a bitter disappointment and complain that the regulatory authority was only satisfied with the pure announcement of price increases and did not even carry out an examination. Whether dumping prices or not, Telekom has already secured a customer base of 2.2 million and, with a share of over 90 percent in DSL connections, has an almost dominant position. In the end it is the consumer who has to dig deeper into their pockets again.
