The two operators were thus ordered to pay respective fines of € 65.7 million and € 117.5 million.

This decision follows a complaint filed by Bouygues Telecom in 2006, the agency said. This legal action concerned in particular unlimited offers marketed by SFR and Orange, within their own networks, between 2005 and 2008.

Following this decision, Orange said it would file an appeal.
