Mauritius - NCA is investigation triple-play offer because of possible abuse of monopoly position on ADSL market

[telecompaper] The Competition Commission of Mauritius (CCM) has opened an investigation into Mauritius Telecom's MyT triple-play product due to concerns that the operator could be using its effective monopoly of the ADSL market to gain an advantage in the sale of TV services and international calls. It will look into whether Mauritius Telecom refuses to supply the higher-speed ADSL products except as part of a package, or prices the MyT bundle against the "ADSL-only" service in a way that influences customers to choose MyT. If the CCM finds that Mauritius Telecom's actions have restricted competition, it can impose remedial measures, but not financial penalties, which can only be applied for collusion between competing companies
