Romania's Competition Council found numerous abusive clauses in local operators' multi-play contracts, writes local publication Hotnews.ro. One of these concerns the high penalties imposed to customers who wish to close their contracts in advance. The high costs related to the anticipated closing of a contract discourage switching, says the authority. The watchdog said it submitted all its findings to the consumers' protection body for analysis.
