Court orders WindTre to give customers 28-day bill refunds

Wednesday 21 July 2021 | 15:11 CET | News
A Milan court has ordered Italian operator WindTre to compensate users for charging them on a 28-day rather than a monthly basis from 2016 to 2018, reports Mondo Mobile Web, citing the court's ruling. The legal action was brought by consumer body Movimento Consumatore, which welcomed the decision, above all the confirmation that the billing practice harmed the collective rights and interests of consumers, and that customers who cancelled their contract prior to April 2018 must also be reimbursed.
