Abstract: Motivation: The telecommunications industry in Poland for many years was legally monopolized by a single, state-owned operator, Telekomunikacja Polska SA (hereinafter TP SA). In 1998, however, a long process of privatization of the company began, which was accompanied by the liberalization of the telecommunications industry. The services have become increasingly cheaper for consumers, who has started to use convergence offerings, as well as the new telecommunications technologies have developed rapidly. A start-up of new operators significantly weakened the competitive position of the former telecommunications industry monopolist. In the literature of the subject there is no interpretation of the deep transformations taking place in the telecommunications industry. The assessment of these transformations in terms of the competitive position of the Orange Polska Capital Group (hereinafter Orange Group) is a key motive for the selection of the article subject. Aim: The aim of this article is to demonstrate the relationship between the privatization of TP SA and the competitive position of the Orange Group. The research was conducted through statistical data evaluation. The analysis was based on the report of the Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) about the state of the telecommunications industry in Poland. Results: The analysis showed the relationship between TP SA privatization process and the competitive position of Orange Group. As a result of these changes, the Orange Group has lost part of its share in each segment of the telecommunications market in Poland.
