Zap appeals against regulator fine

Monday 11 March 2019 | 15:48 CET | News
Angolan pay-TV distributor Zap has assured that its February price update complies with legal requirements and has appealed against the fine imposed by the country's regulator, reports Jornal de Angola. This follows the company's decision to increase the prices of the four channel packages by 40 percent from 26 February, without consulting consumer associations, a measure that the Angolan Communications Institute (Inacom) considered a violation of the law.
