Longer Valid Call Credits
Call credits should at least be good for half a year. A majority in the House wants Minister Henk Kamp of Economic Affairs, to arrange this by law as soon as possible, reports the AD on Tuesday. D66, PvdA, PVV, CDA and SP follow with this call an action of the consumer organization Consumentenbond. The Consumentenbond thinks that call credits may not expire after only one month. They say that companies like T-Mobile, Vodafone and KPN earn about 68 million euro a month on expired call credits. D66 wants that call credits will be valid for half a year or even a year before they expire. Coalition partner PvdA will support this plan during the debate with the minister. “One month is really too short,” says PvdA MP Astrid Oosenburg. CDA, PVV and SP want also that the call credit can be transferred when people transfer to another provider.
