TP faces fresh fixed-line fee fight

Telekomunikacja Polska has vowed to fight attempts by Danish Polish Telecommunications Group (DPTG) to enforce a tribunal ruling over fixed line fees.
DPTG hopes to force the Polish telco to stump up €396 million it was ordered to pay by an arbitration tribunal in August covering the fees from 1994 to 2004, despite a second hearing being due to decide on fees from 2004 onwards.
Telekomunikacja Polska said it will fight a lawsuit filed at a district court in Poland to decide if the partial decision could be enforced ahead of the second part of the fees trial, which is scheduled for March.
The telco’s board believes the interim payment decision was faulty, and said enforcing the payout runs contrary to Polish public policy.
