French conglomerate Bouygues has submitted a complaint about the bidding process for a fourth 3G mobile operator to France’s highest administrative court, the Council of State, La Tribune said on Wednesday, notes Reuters. Bouygues’s complaint comes just days before the 29 October deadline fixed by French telecom regulator ARCEP for accepting applications for a fourth license. Internet provider Iliad is seen as the frontrunner. Bouygues is contesting the price for the licence, fixed by ARCEP at EUR240 million, on the grounds that it paid EUR619 million to gain its own license in 2002.
