Telefonica prevails in complaint over 'unfair' Fusion price hikes

Wednesday 24 October 2018 | 11:26 CET | News
Madrid's provincial appellate court has found in favour of Telefonica in a long-running case brought by consumer protection association Facua over a May 2015 price hike, reports El Pais. The court ruled that a collective complaint over Telefonica's decision to raise prices for its Movistar Fusion plan should be shelved for good due to "procedural irregularities", meaning that the merits of the case weren't assessed.
