Colao says that he will inform Commissioner Neelie Kroes that Vodafone will take legal action against any slide toward re-monopolisation of the telecom sector.

 

“The European former monopolies still control 60 to 70 per cent of the fixed market,” Colao told the Financial Times. “They believe that this is the great opportunity to re-monopolise the market.”
