EU Set To Fine Google Billions

Ahead of next week’s planned meeting of the European Union’s competition watchdog, the fate of Google’s potential abuse of its dominance of its Android operating system for mobile phones, is set to attract a billion dollar fine and ordered to make changes to the company’s business practices.

The European Commission is tipped to find that the California-based company’s actions allegedly thwarted potential competitors to safeguard its mobile-advertising business.

The fine could surpass the €2.4 billion (A$3.8 billion) that the EU levied against Google last year for abusing the dominance of its search engine to skew search results in favor of its own comparison-shopping service.
