The European Commission's antitrust unit is fining Deutsche Telekom AG and its subsidiary Slovak Telekom a.s. a total of a 69.9 million for shutting out rivals from the Slovak market for broadband services for more than five years, in breach of EU antitrust rules, the commission said in a statement Wednesday.
