PRAGUE, March 13 The Czech anti-monopoly
regulator UOHS said on Monday it would start an investigation
into the market for mobile voice and data services to see if
there is any illegal coordinated action among operators.
"The goal will be to find out whether there exists any
reason for the competition regulator to take action in these
markets," it said in a statement on its website.
"This will concern investigating indications whether...there
has been banned coordination of competitors, or abuse of
dominant position," it said.
Operators O2 Czech Republic, T-Mobile
and Vodafone have been criticised by politicians who say
Czechs pay some of the highest mobile and data prices in Europe.
Political parties have agreed to fast-track legislation this
year with the aim of bringing prices down.
