Italian operators lose another appeal against 28-day billing refunds

Thursday 6 February 2020 | 15:47 CET | News
Italian operators Telecom Italia (TIM), Fastweb, Vodafone and Wind Tre are required to automatically reimburse fixed line customers for the switch to 28-day billing plans from 2017 to 2018, reiterated the Council of State in the latest judgment issued in the long-running case. The Council of State, Italy's top administrative court, dismissed Vodafone Italia's appeal against an earlier ruling by the Regional Administrative Court of Lazio but also rejected regulator Agcom's appeal against the regional court's decision to halve the EUR 1.11 million fine imposed on each operator.
