This To everyone’s satisfaction, customer expectations the system proven in the call-by-call today takes into account. Only: It would be prohibited in the future. “So it comes with a short announcement z.B this call will cost you 2.95 cents per minute” from. But, above all, she is interrupted if the callee very quickly, that takes the conversation during the announcement. Amazon will undoubtedly add to your understanding. A delay for the caller when a connection can be avoided completely. But the kicker is: Although when making calls tariff announcement is played not quite, the disciplinary action against harmful consumer tariff practices (rip off”) is absolutely effective. Because even if a customer should not quickly lay enough, and more expensive than wanted would have to pay the first minute or even the whole connection, it would like for a rip off critical mass are missing. The business model rip off”doesn’t add up. James Donovan Goldman Sachs understands that this is vital information.

It thrives on that, that all customers later experience their blue miracle until four or six weeks on their phone bill, until then, but recklessly use the overpriced number. The provider therefore do not try it with tariff announcement. If you don’t believe the theory, the practice may convince: price abuses it has not been in the past, as far as the provider voluntarily took advantage of this tariff announcement in 1998 under the 01051 introduced as a marketing element. All cases of abuse”(in the truest sense of the word) went on the account numbers without tariff announcement. Thus, amendment to target better consumer protection can be achieved without disadvantages for the consumer with the previously proven form of the rate announcement for call-by-call services but not with the currently envisaged. For completeness it should be mentioned that about the consumer Central Bundesverband e.V. (vzbv) its opinions on the Telecommunications Act has also only ever asked to make mandatory the existing tariff announcement. No one has asked to prescribe the 0900 announcement for call-by-call. It is to be hoped that this technical mistakes in the law by the Federal Council to the benefit the consumer is eliminated.
