Serbia’s Commission for Protection of Competition (KZK) has officially launched an investigation into Serbia Broadband – Serbian Cable Network Belgrade (SBB).
In a statement, the KZK says it wants to determine if SBB abused its dominant market position, within the meaning of the Law on Protection of Competition.
Specifically, SBB increased its monthly maintenance fee to RSD1,395 (€11.72) at the beginning of this year.
One of the conditions the KZK imposed in approving SBB’s take-over of the cable operator Ikom in March 2017 was that SBB would provide it with a report within 15 days listing the reasons for changing its fees. As SBB failed to provide sufficient evidence to justify the increase, the KZK has decided to initiate the investigation.
As previously reported by Broadband TV News, the possibility of an investigation into the price increase was first mooted in January.
