The Competition Authority mandated that national postal service Eesti Post lower its prices to Express Post.

Eesti Post owns the country's only nationwide postal network, a service that Express Post has wanted to subcontract since 2009.

However, the state regulator found that the price offers made by Eesti Post are unfairly discriminatory of Express Post compared to other companies that use the service.

Delivering the mail of Express Post, the Competition Authority said, would not require any more work than with other companies. Payments should be even cheaper if the deal provides that Express Post is in charge of sorting the mail, the agency added.
