TIM, Wind Tre, Vodafone and Fastweb told to compensate clients for billing practice

Monday 3 December 2018 | 08:59 CET | News
Italy's top administrative court, the Council of State, has upheld a decision issued by communications regulator Agcom ordering Telecom Italia (TIM), Wind Tre, Vodafone and Fastweb to compensate users for charging them on a 28-day rather than a monthly basis by the end of the year. Vodafone and Wind had asked the court to suspend the payment, but the Council of State rejected the request, said Reuters. A final decision on the compensation will be taken by a separate court on 18 December.
