Italian fixed plan prices up 29% due to 28-day bills - study

Friday 20 October 2017 | 11:08 CET | News
The average monthly price of a landline including ADSL or fibre in Italy has soared by 29.4 percent over the past two years, above all due to recent moves by operators to bill customers on a 28-day rather than on a monthly basis, according to a survey by price comparison site Sos Tariffe. Data collected from August 2015 to September 2017 showed that the average price of fixed broadband plans outside promotional periods rose from EUR 27.9 to EUR 36.1. During the promotional period – typically 6 or 12 months – average rates fell by 6.4 percent from EUR 26.6 to EUR 24.9, said the report.
