Antitrust, blocca gli ultimi rincari delle compagnie telefoniche

File photo dated 03/08/11 of a smartphone as schemes to reuse millions of smartphones languishing in drawers and cupboards in UK homes could benefit consumers and help the environment, a report said. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Thursday February 19, 2015. A study from think-tank Green Alliance suggests phone manufacturers can redesign devices to make it easier to recover used parts, with the parts in a two-year-old iPhone worth around £170, or to repair damage such as broken screens. Measures could also boost resales, with software companies detecting when customers have upgraded to a new phone, and sending them a pre-paid envelop to send their old device back and crediting their bank account for the value of the phone. This could help reuse the 28 to 125 million smartphones left unused in UK homes, as up to a third of consumers say they keep their old phones because they "don't know what to do with it" and another 17% are too lazy to get rid of them, Green Alliance said. Keeping old phones in use could boost sales of the smart devices, bring their benefits to more consumers in developing countries and tackle the increasing carbon emissions associated with new phones. The report said producing new phones was increasingly carbon intensive, but keeping a smartphone in use for just an extra year cut its carbon impact by almost a third (31%).

Antitrust, blocca gli ultimi rincari delle compagnie telefoniche

Una doccia fredda dall’Antitrust per le compagnie telefoniche, Tim, Vodafone, Wind Tre, Fastweb. Attraverso un provvedimento l’Antitrust intima alle compagnie citate di muoversi autonomamente nell’immediato senza tenere conto degli altri. Qualora questo non avvenisse, il rischio è che in caso di sanzione alla fine del procedimento ci sarebbero motivazioni aggiuntive per stabilire il massimo della punizione fino al 10% del fatturato annuo.
