French carriers investigated for price fixing

France's wireless carriers -- Orange, SFR, and Bouygues Telecom -- have been accused of unfair pricing practices. France's Finance Minister warned that if the allegations of price fixing are true, the carriers will be punished. Reports in French newspapers claim investigators have found evidence that the three wireless carriers shared confidential market information between 1997 and 2003. All three carriers have denied the charges.
