Courts side with Rostelecom in anti-monopoly regulatory case
In May, Rostelecom was brought to court when anti-monopoly watchdog agencies in the Stavropol Territory alleged the leading telecommunications company abused its position by charging different user fees for the same services across different areas of the region.
Rostelecom countered that its pricing structures were standard in the telecommunications industry and were considered best practices to increase customer loyalty and attract new customers. Further, existing telecommunications infrastructure in the region prevented delivery of identical services across all areas.
The courts ruled that Rostelecom was not in violation of the Russian Law on Protection of Competition.
