AgCom blocks Telecom Italia's landline price hike

Monday 4 April 2016 | 09:18 CET | News
Italy's communications regulator AgCom has rejected Telecom Italia's plan to apply a 300 percent increase to the price of basic landline calls to Italian fixed and mobile numbers starting 01 April. The watchdog said the price hike "is not justified by general economic conditions such as consumer price changes or the increase in the purchasing power of Italians." Telecom Italia replied that it had acted in full respect of the rules and its customers.
