Bouygues seeks 3G delay
Posted: 10-Jan-2001 [Source: Financial Times]

[Chairman of French carrier, Bouygues Telecom, questions licensing process in areas of competition and fees.]

by David Owen, Raphael Minder, Paris; Deborah Hargreaves, Brussels -- "A leading French telecommunications executive has asked the European Commission to postpone the distribution of French third-generation mobile phone licences.

"Martin Bouygues, chairman of Bouygues and majority shareholder in Bouygues Telecom, France's third-largest mobile phone carrier, made the suggestion at a recent meeting with Erkki Liikanen, the Commission's enterprise and information society commissioner.

"He suggested postponing the process by a few months to consider whether the contests in France and other countries in Europe met the guidelines on competition and the amounts charged by member states for the licences.

"The guidelines are to ensure that the conditions are equitable and the licence charges reasonable.

"Mr Bouygues' exasperation with the way in which some licences have been allocated is no secret. Last year Bouygues complained to Brussels on the issue.
