Poland's Urząd Ochrony Konkurencji i Konsumentów slapped a fine of more than 50 million zlotys on telecom company Polkomtel Sp. z o.o. for allegedly charging extra fees for video streaming and violating the principle of open internet access.
In a statement, UOKiK said it had initiated proceedings at the end of 2018 after a customer lodged a complaint. The regulatory body found that customers had limited access to packages they paid for, as Polkomtel had imposed additional fees of 40 groszy per minute of transmission for video streaming since 2013.
Cyfrowy Polsat SA is the parent company of Polkomtel.
As of Jan. 21, US$1 was equivalent to 3.81 Polish zlotys.
