Madrid court shelves complaint against Telefonica price hike

Wednesday 12 April 2017 | 08:35 CET | News
A Madrid court has backed Telefonica in its fight against consumer protection association FACUA over a May 2015 price hike, reports business daily Expansion. Madrid Mercantile Court no. 8 ruled that the collective complaint over Telefonica's decision to raise prices for its Movistar Fusion plan should be shelved due to procedural irregularities after the consumer association tried to extend the proceedings to price increases announced in 2016 and 2017. FACUA had described Telefonica's move to increase the price of its Movistar Fusion convergent offers as "illegal" and "unfair".
