Use of the term ‘unlimited’

On October 11, the Malta Competition and Consumer Affairs Authority, through the Director General (Consumer Affairs), as empowered by the provisions contained in the Consumer Affairs Act (Cap. 378 of the Laws of Malta), decided that operators Melita plc, Melita Mobile Ltd, Go plc, Mobisle Communications Ltd and Vodafone Malta Ltd had infringed the said Act by means of unfair commercial practices in connection with the services provided by them by means of the use of the word ‘unlimited’ or ‘bla/mingħajr limitu’ and other expressions that pass on the same message or indication to the consumer that there is no limit and that there are no conditions that act as limits; whereas there is a limit imposed by the operators.

In terms of Article 110H (2) of the Consumer Affairs Act (Cap. 378 of the Laws of Malta), the decisions are published by means of their posting on the authority’s website at www.mccaa.org.mt.
