Friday 26 February 2021 | 09:17 CET | News
Italian communications regulator Agcom has fined WindTre and Vodafone Italia a total of EUR 1.2 million for applying extra charges. The watchdog said the WindTre's introduction of a EUR 4 per month cost for its New Basic plan from August 2020 changed the nature of its contractual relationship with impacted customers, who were charged even if they had no active offer. As a result the operator was fined EUR 696,000.
