The trial between telephone companies
Are you assured that there are sixty seconds in a minute? But correspondingly to IDT many calling card companies just give customers 36 seconds in a minute. Many world-known companies declared that there can't be any fair competition if one of rivals has got unjust benefit before the beginning of a competition. In 2007 IDT/UTA (Union Telecard Alliance) commenced a suit against several corporations-providers of prepaid phone cards attributing erroneous advertising and misleading commerce practices. According to IDT press release, some of their rivals just give 60 percent of the advertised minutes to the client.
Last year Total Call International and IDT/UTA was blamed for illegal procedures by the group of telephone corporations that comprised IDT Telecom Inc. and LLC. This brings to four the number of accused groups which have settled the enforcement proceedings commenced by IDT/UTA before, this year. Today there is a list of other accused includes about six corporations and some of them are: Epana Networks Inc., Dollar Phone Corp., etc.
IDT/UTA's suit versus the remaining defendants is still continuing in federal court in Newark, New Jersey. Lately, one of softswitch manufacturers made public his new terms of paying the phone services. That new method allows any client to define the length of the minute that suits him better, and the system would deduct units form the balance and the consumer will have an opportunity to check precisely how many minutes were kept back and how many are left.
Furthermore, they mentioned that it is standard on every phone card platforms. I didn't realize that it was true. But now when I found IDT communique, I understand that they were probably right. That signifies that the international phone card, that is for $10.00, brings you 1000 minutes for conversations! You have to choose properly the cards to be assured you're buying what you pay for.
Customers will be given the minutes, they forfeited during the illegal practices, as a bonus. If the corporations, prosecuted by the judicial power, accepted the proposal faster, they would get a ability to be excluded from the list of lawbreakers. To establish the level of paying field all the corporations, which provide the telephone services have to further good practices and standards. The methods, that will precisely examine all the actions related to the pay beforehand cards, will be designed by these companies. All the companies reached the acceptance that every of them has to do its best to resolve this problem as soon as possible.
