Qualcomm fined $272M in latest EU antitrust case over predatory pricing - TechSpot
TechSpotcachedstripped 2 hours ago
Qualcomm is being slammed by the EU with a fine to the tune of €242 million (around $272 million) for its use of predatory tactics in an attempt to drive a competitor of its 3G modem business out of the market almost a decade ago. The antitrust investigation found that Qualcomm had been selling its 3G modems to Huawei and ZTE at a loss between 2009 and 2011, effectively stunting the growth of Icera, who was showing a lot of promise in a market where Qualcomm at 60% share was three times bigger. The chipmaker naturally disagrees with the assessment and is planning to appeal, even as the fine is relatively small at just over 1% of its global turnover in 2018, or ten times less than the maximum extent under EU antitrust law.
