Viva asks Indotel to declare Claro as “dominant company” to avoid abuses

The telecommunications services company Viva formally requested the Dominican Institute of Telecommunications (Indotel) to declare the also telecommunications company Claro as "dominant position company", due to the marked tendency to monopoly that it presents in the relevant markets of the country.

The executive director of Viva, Marcos Herrera, was in charge of depositing the request at Indotel’s headquarters, while also denouncing Claro for the "commission of serious misconduct" which constitute acts restrictive of competition according to the General Telecommunications Law No. 153-98.

"Indotel must always deliberate for free competition and avoid the establishment of monopolistic practices … in 2019 Indotel ordered a study that directly verified that Claro is a company with a clear dominant position in the telecommunications market with trends to become a monopoly"Herrera told the media.

The president of Viva pointed out that Claro’s monopolistic trend has also affected other countries in the region, At the same time, it indicated that for years now Colombia and Mexico have made the respective declarations of dominant position against them due to the abuses registered in those markets.

Herrera explained that the importance of the declaration of Claro’s dominant position in the Dominican market would allow Indotel to take the necessary measures to slow down and reverse "its monopolistic tendency, as well as to avoid possible abuses and anti-competitive practices of these in the market".
