(Telecompaper) Italy’s antitrust and competition authority AGCM has fined the operators Telecom Italia (TIM), Wind Tre, Vodafone Italia and Fastweb a total of EUR 228 million following a probe into possible collusion over their controversial 28-day billing practices. The operators were accused of infringing competition rules by collectively agreeing to raise their prices after introducing 28-day billing in 2017, effectively resulting in a 13th monthly bill every year. As a result, the watchdog fined TIM a total of over EUR 114 million, Vodafone 60 million, Wind Tre EUR 39 million and Fastweb over EUR 14 million.
