Úno 25


Consumer watchdog organization Which? has filed a £482.5 million case against Qualcomm for allegedly breaching UK competition law.
Which? believes Qualcomm has breached UK competition law by taking advantage of its dominance in the patent-licensing and chipset markets. The result is that it is able to charge manufacturers like Apple and Samsung inflated fees for technology licences, which have then been passed on to consumers in the form of higher smartphone prices.
Which? is seeking damages for all affected Apple and Samsung smartphones purchased since 1st October 2015. It estimates that individual consumers could be due up to £30 depending on the number and type of smartphones purchased during that period, although it is expected at this stage that most consumers would receive around £17.
