Argentina court rules against operator price hikes

Monday 1 February 2021 | 11:45 CET | News
An Argentinian court has dismissed legal action brought by the country's telecommunications operators against the plans of regulator Enacom to prevent what it regards as excessive price increases, reports local news portal Perfil, citing the watchdog's director Carlos Ambrosini. Under Decree 690 introduced by the government at the end of last year, operators of internet, pay-TV, fixed and mobile telephony services are permitted to increase rates by a maximum of 5 percent starting this year following a temporary price freeze.
