Italy's Agcom orders TIM and Wind to adjust roaming offers

Friday 3 June 2016 | 10:05 CET | News
Italian communications regulator Agcom has ordered TIM (Telecom Italia) and Wind to adjust two of their roaming offers to take into account the new EC roaming rates that entered into force on 30 April. The watchdog took issue with the operators' automatic application of two roaming packages without seeking prior customer consent after receiving complaints from user rights association ADUC. TIM and Wind have been given until 30 June to adjust their rates and inform Agcom of the actions taken.
