Italy's Council of State rejects Asstel appeal against 28-day billing refunds

Wednesday 29 July 2020 | 10:17 CET | News
Italy's Council of State, the country's top administrative court, has dismissed an appeal lodged by Italian industry group Assotelecomunicazioni (Asstel) against an earlier ruling by regulator Agcom regarding the decision of most of the country's operators to switch to 28-day billing plans from 2017 to 2018. According to Mondo Mobile Web, the Council of State again sided with Agcom after Asstel argued that the watchdog was not entitled to regulate the contractual relationships between operators and users.
