BRUSSELS, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- The European Union (EU) has finedU.S. smartphone chip supplier Qualcomm 997 million euros (1.23billion U.S. dollars)

 , the EuropeanCommission said on Wednesday.

Qualcomm is the world's largest supplier of long-term evolution(LTE) baseband chipsets, which enable smartphones and tablets toconnect to cellular networks
and are used both for voice and datatransmission.

The Commission said Qualcomm illegally shut out rivals from themarket for LTE baseband chipsets for over five years, therebycementing its market dominance.

"Qualcomm paid billions of U.S. dollars to a key customer,Apple, so that it would not buy from
rivals Cheap Jared

 ," said MargretheVestager, EU commissioner in charge of
competition policy.

These payments were not just reductions in price, they were madeon the condition that Apple would exclusively use Qualcomm'sbaseband chipsets in all of
its iPhones and iPads, Vestagersaid.

In 2011, Qualcomm signed an agreement with Apple Cheap Devan

 , committing tomake significant payments to Apple on the
condition that thecompany would exclusively use Qualcomm chipsets in its iPhone

"This meant that no rival could effectively challenge Qualcommin this market, no matter how good their products were. Qualcomm'sbehavior denied consumers and
other companies more choice andinnovation and this is a sector with a huge
demand and potentialfor innovative technologies. This is illegal under EU
antitrustrules," she added.

Other chip manufacturers active in this market, such as Intel --the largest supplier for chipsets used in computers -- has tried tochallenge and compete
with Qualcomm for customers.

decidedagainst doing so until the agreement came to an end.

setting out additional factualelements relevant to the final decision.

The fine represents 4.9 percent of Qualcomm's turnover in2017.

Qualcomm said in a press release on Wednesday that it stronglydisagreed with the European Commission's decision and wouldimmediately appeal it to the General
Court of the EuropeanUnion.

"We are confident this agreement did not violate EU competitionrules or adversely affect market competition or Europeanconsumers," said Don Rosenberg,
executive vice president andgeneral counsel of Qualcomm. "We have a strong case
for judicialreview and we will immediately commence that process." Enditem
