Swedish PTS issues draft rules on retail contract wording

Wednesday 23 January 2013 | 13:26 CET | News
Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said it has published draft regulations requiring operators to make telephony and broadband contracts clearer to consumers. They are expected to come into force in summer and feedback on the proposals should be submitted by 25 February. PTS said contracts should make clear what service is being provided, such as what speed internet can be expected or whether VoIP is possible. The aim is to make it easier for consumers to choose a suitable subscription.
