Our extensive telecoms dispute practice includes litigation between the regulator and two of the biggest Estonian mobile operators, who contested the decisions taken by the Authority regulating the wholesale market for voice call termination on individual mobile networks. In its decisions, the Authority concluded that each provider of individual mobile call termination should be designated as having significant market power (SMP), and consequently imposed the following regulatory remedies on the mobile operators: 1) provision of access upon reasonable request, 2) non-discrimination, 3) transparency and 4) price control. The decisions drew on the new regulatory framework for electronic communications in the EU and are closely connected to issues of competition law.
