Wednesday 27 January 2021 | 11:14 CET | News
Argentina's telecommunications regulator Enacom has initiated administrative processes with a view to fining operators over what it regards as excessive price increases, reports Telesemana. 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 last year's price freeze.
