Slovenian regulator will not ban zero-rating offers

Tuesday 25 September 2018 | 10:29 CET | News
Slovenian telecom regulator Akos has said it has no legal basis in Slovenian or European law to ban offers from mobile operators that include zero-rated services. However, under the European Regulation concerning the provision of internet access services and the Electronic Communications Act, it will take action against any such offers that would substantially reduce the choice available to end-users. The regulator added that it will continue to monitor market development and pay special attention to zero-tariff offers and their possible negative effects on the rights of end-users.
