Telecom Italia to double price of landline calls

Monday 29 February 2016 | 14:30 CET | News
Telecom Italia has informed residential landline customers of its intention to double the price of calls to Italian fixed and mobile numbers from 10 eurocents per minute to 20 eurocents starting 01 April. The call set up fee will remain at 20 eurocents and the price hike only applies to subscribers to the company's basic "Voce" plan. The thinking behind the increased charges appears to be to persuade users to switch to one of the operator's flat-rate plans such as "Tutto Voce" or convergent offers such as "TIM Smart".
