Vodafone Italia cautioned over fibre advertising

Tuesday 12 March 2019 | 10:48 CET | News
Italy's antitrust regulator AGCM has initiated proceedings leading to a possible fine against Vodafone Italia for allegedly using misleading advertising to promote its fibre-optic offer. In a statement, AGCM accused the operator of omitting certain information regarding internet connectivity services provided via fibre-optic technology. This includes failing to adequately inform consumers of the technological limitations and geographical coverage of services such as IperFibra or IperFibra 1Gigabit depending on the infrastructure used to offer the connection.
