Telecom Italia suspends TIM Prime weekly charge

Wednesday 6 April 2016 | 11:04 CET | News
Telecom Italia has announced the suspension of its TIM Prime service, due to enter into force on 09 April, after communications regulator Agcom described the service as unfair and referred the operator to the competition authority. The service would have seen millions of customers automatically charged EUR 0.49 per week for unlimited calls and SMS to a chosen TIM number, which would have amounted to an infringement of the country's consumer code, according to Agcom.
