Austrian consumer group VKI wins court ruling against Yesss! contract clauses

vki-ftAustrian consumer group VKI has won a court ruling against various clauses in the terms and conditions of A1 Telekom Austria’s Yesss! discount brand.

The complaint was filed by the VKI on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection (BMASK).

The Upper Regional Court of Vienna has ruled that the clauses are inadmissible.

Two of the clauses relate to a lack of price transparency, such as the value of charges when upgrading to a contract plan. The ruling is not legally binding.
