German Telekom: throttle tariffs should lose the term flat rate




The Focus reported in its online edition today that the German Telekom apparently wants to abolish the term PC. The reason for this is to be the judgment of the District Court of Cologne. At 30.10 there was the appropriate sentence. The regional court in Cologne ruled that the German Telekom may not implement its throttling plans in flat rates.


The ruling followed a lawsuit the Consumer NRW. The ruling applies to both the originally announced reduction to 384 kilobits as well as that on 2 megabits per second – the Consumer Association did not agree with the designation PC. “The term flat rate of customer connect with internet access via the landline a fixed price for a certain surfing speed and do not expect limitations” – as the former explanation.

Many readers and also we suspected at the time: the German Telekom will just remove the term from the flat rate tariffs. So it should be, according to Focus also: The German Telekom plans to cut at DSL tariffs with volume limit the term “flat rate”. The new scheme is to be introduced in December. This naturally raises the question of whether this is simply feasible. “If the only telecom plan will no longer throttled DSL contracts” flat rate “to call, so that would be legally questionable and not enough,” said one consumer advocate.

Monday we are smarter, around 11:00 clock, the German Telekom its conference call, in which the general public is informed of the new approach.

And now the whole thing please apply at all throttle firms and also complain against cell phone providers who advertise with 200 MB of flat rates and send the customer after consumption of 200 MB in the GPRS hell.
