Italy's Agcom adds 3 Italia to roaming probe

Monday 15 August 2016 | 09:45 CET | News
Italian communications regulator Agcom has announced that it will be investigating 3 Italia's failure to comply with the new EC roaming rates that entered into force on 30 April. In May the watchdog also accused TIM (Telecom Italia) and Wind of failing to adjust their roaming offers or provide consumers with full information on the basic rate and alternative tariffs. Agcom added that it would be monitoring the roaming offers of all Italian telecoms operators prior to the abolition of EU roaming surcharges on 15 June 2017.
