[cat] The Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) has today referred to the Competition Commission (CC) the price control matters in appeals brought against Ofcom by British Telecom, Everything Everywhere, Hutchison 3G and Vodafone. The reference is about the prices that Ofcom permits communication providers to charge for the termination of a wholesale mobile voice call.
Under the 2003 Communications Act, if decisions by Ofcom are appealed to the CAT and include a price control matter, then this matter must be referred to the CC for determination. The CC has until 9 February 2012 to determine the pricing issues.
