Iliad Italia claiming EUR 500 mln damages for Vodafone MNP delays

Friday 2 August 2019 | 10:09 CET | News
Iliad Italia has lodged a complaint before a Milan civil court requesting EUR 500 million in compensation from Vodafone Italia for delays in processing mobile number portability (MNP) requests and misleading advertising, reports news agency Radiocor. The damages claim relates to backlogs at many Italian operators last summer in view of the sheer number of users switching contracts following the arrival of Iliad at the end of May 2018, with Vodafone allegedly exceeding the 3-day limit to process MNP requests by several weeks.
