Vodafone Omnitel B.V. Key Developments

F2i Plans Not To Sell Stake In Metroweb

Fondo Italiano per le Infrastrutture does not plan to sell its 53.8% stake in Metroweb Italia S.p.A. to either Vodafone Omnitel B.V. or Telecom Italia S.p.A. (BIT:TIT), daily La Repubblica reported quoting sources close to the matter. F2i wants to enhance the value of its stake with a long-term industrial project. F2i has also told Telecom Italia and Vodafone that it will examine the offer containing the plan with better development guarantees, La Repubblica added. Telecom Italia is interested in buying into Metroweb only in case it could have at least 51%, the talks continue. Negotiations with Vodafone are also going on, La Repubblica said.

Italian Consumers Demand Refund After AGCM Fines Telecom Italia, 3 Italia, Wind and Vodafone Italia

Italian consumer association Altroconsumo has called on Telecom Italia, 3 Italia, Wind and Vodafone Italia to refund customers after the country's competition regulator AGCM fined the operators a total of over EUR 5 million for premium mobile services charged without user permission. The watchdog accused the operators of unfair and aggressive commercial practices and of misleading customers by including paid services that weren't requested or were requested unknowingly on their monthly phone bills. Altroconsumo announced that the 'historic' decision but went on to say that 'every single euro, unjustly and wrongfully charged, must be refunded to customers'. The consumer body sent a formal notice to each operator, adding that it would be following the case closely and would proceed to file a collective class action if the operators refused to refund customers for charges incurred after they unknowingly subscribed to premium services.

Metroweb Gauges Merger Interest

Metroweb Italia S.p.A. has reportedly sent out letters of invitation to a number of leading banking firms requesting advisory services over its possible merger with either Vodafone Omnitel B.V. or Telecom Italia S.p.A. (BIT:TIT). According to local media reports, letters were sent to Lazard, HSBC, Rothschild and Leonardo & Co, with responses expected by the end of next week. Telecom Italia and Vodafone have both expressed an interest in bidding for control of Metroweb, but infrastructure fund Fondo Italiano per le Infrastrutture, which owns an indirect stake in the firm, is not expected to make a decision on the future of the company until the two interested parties reveal their investment plans.
