Peru watchdog suspends 'unlimited' data plans

Friday 10 November 2017 | 09:46 CET | News
Peruvian telecom regulator Osiptel has ordered the country's operators to temporarily suspend the "all-you-can-eat" data plans launched last month on the grounds that the corresponding conditions are insufficiently transparent. Operators who don't suspend sales of the plans within one working day face heavy fines, with the watchdog accusing companies of raising false expectations and prompting customer complaints.
