We were fearing it ourselves and it has been confirmed. Operators do not want to give up revenues with consumer law, and how are forced to charge for seconds, the rates will rise.
At the moment we know those of Movistar. The establishment of call will change from cost 12 cents to 15 cents. In addition the basis of all contracts rates rise (although in some of them lower certain fees, at least one positive news) and saving modules. My favorite now will cost 1.2 cents per minute (now costs 1). Sub-26-area 3G, which now cost 6 cents, will pass to cost 7.2. Fortunately, my five will cost 3 cents per minute. Looks like that thing that prices “for life” has been on wet paper.
How outrageous is that you have gone up even the contract rate your time, which already billed for seconds from the beginning of the call, so you do not have any justification.
Movistar also set four types of destination to collect calls differently: type 1 will be other mobile Movistar; Type 2, the national fixed; Type 3, the mobile Orange, Vodafone, mobile Happy and Carrefour; and type 4, Euskaltel and Telstra, which is usually the most expensive will be always.
In GSMspain some participants have already hung the information that will appear on bills from February 1. Note that the information provided by the operator is expressed in euros per second and that, again, the Royal Decree 424/2005 will allow to unsubscribe without penalty to all clients that are not in accordance with these new conditions.
At the moment we don’t know new rates for prepaid cards, although it is expected that they will also rise. Imitate the other operators to Movistar or returns to stay single as it happened with the latest rise in prices to Yoigo and Euskaltel? Either way, our rates are more expensive, convoluted and abusive. Where is the price war that would bring the OMVs?
