Transparency: Infoblätter for tariffs from now duty

Product Information Sheets for Tariffs – The Transparency Regulation adopted at the end of 2016 has entered into force. Providers and network operators must now provide interested parties with product information sheets, on which all relevant contract and tariff data are clearly presented.

Product information sheets for tariffs

From now on, mobile phone providers must provide information about their tariffs and their running times. The Transparency Regulation adopted a few months ago entered into force on 1 June 2017 and provides product information sheets which provide detailed information on the tariff, its contents, the duration, notice periods and the like.

The Bundesnetzagentur had issued samples, which should give the suppliers an orientation and which can use these on request. For example, the Drillisch brand simply uses the form and is currently using it in a modified form. Vodafone, on the other hand, has created its own design and informs about it with its own tariffs.

Product information before booking

However, the core of the transparency regulation is not only the product information sheets, but also their provision before the end of the tariff. Interested parties should have the opportunity to get information about their preferred tariff and compare it with others more easily. The tedious search for details, such as the minimum contract term or any time-limited promotional fees, is no longer required – even the “hiding” of unpopular tariff components such as data processing in the small print is no longer possible.

Interested parties should check the product information sheets and check them before booking. Above all, the services included in the tariff, maximum surfing speeds, travel times and promotional prices can be easily determined by them.
