Citizens Advice has responded to Ofcom’s announcement today that EE and Virgin Media will be fined for overcharging their customers who have ended their contracts early.
Gillian Guy, Chief Executive of Citizens Advice, said:
“Yet again mobile and broadband companies have been caught overcharging their customers. Anyone who has been affected by this deserves a refund.
“Our own research exposed mobile providers for knowingly overcharging customers for phones they already own by £500 million.
“This is another in a long line of failings in the mobile and broadband industry – we need an independent consumer champion to stick up for customers and stop this from happening.”
