Iliad did not get the acceptance of his application for precautionary suspension of Vodafone’s SMS winback, in the frame of his civil lawsuit against the red operator for alleged anti-competitive conduct.
Iliad had indeed brought Vodafone in front of the Court of Milan reporting repeated incorrect commercial practices by the red operator. The application for precautionary suspension to immediately stop SMS winbacks addressed to former Vodafone customers who have gone to Iliad however, it was not accepted because the Court would not have found any critical issues in terms of the characteristics of the offer and information to customers.
For this reason, as reported The sun 24 hours, Vodafone’s SMS winback campaigns will also be able to continue towards the former customers currently in Iliad.
The rejected precautionary suspension request is part of a wider framework, which also includes delays in portability on Iliad’s arrival, which had prompted AGCOM to intervene.
All in all, also considering damage to the image precisely due to the delay in portability, the operator had asked the Court of Milan compensation for damages of around 500 million euros.
