Michael Binetti quoted in PaRR competition law newsletter

Michael Binetti, partner at Affleck Greene McMurtry LLP, is quoted PaRR Global’s competition law newsletter to its subscribers: TekSavvy’s release of competition complaint ‘unusual’—lawyers, published on March 23, 2020 (full article reproduced below with permission).

We previously wrote about the dispute commenced by TekSavvy in our article: TekSavvy Claims That Bell And Rogers Abuse Their Dominant Position For Internet Services

In a public version of its complaint to the Canadian Competition Commissioner, Internet re-seller TekSavvy says that Bell Canada and Rogers Communications Canada have been abusing their dominant position in wholesale and retail markets for wireline Internet services in Ontario and Quebec. They do this, TekSavvy alleges, by increasing the wholesale prices charged to TekSavvy and others to use the Bell/Rogers Internet infrastructure while at the same time reducing prices for their own Internet services that compete directly against TekSavvy.

Michael is quoted in the PaRR newsletter: “It’s unusual that TekSavvy has made it public,” agreed Michael Binetti, a competition lawyer at Affleck Greene McMurtry. “This is a way to nudge the enforcement arm into action.” Additional quotes from the interview are in the article below.

PaRR delivers global intelligence, analysis and data on competition law, anti-corruption enforcement, cybersecurity/ data privacy, and sector-specific regulatory change.
