JOHANNESBURG - South Africa's competition watchdog said on Friday fixed-line operator Telkom SA had agreed to pay a fine of R200 million to settle complaints it used its dominant market position to the detriment of other internet providers.

Telkom agreed in April to pay a separate R449 million rand fine for using its dominant position to block competition from other network providers.
