Thurs - France's top 3 mobile operators fined

France’s top three mobile telephone operators have been fined a record $629.5m by the country’s competition watchdog for market collusion over a six-year period.

The Competition Council said today that Orange France, which is part of France Telecom, Bouygues Telecom and Vivendi Universal-controlled SFR had exchanged confidential commercial information during the period from 1997 to 2003.

Oops, guys!
