Several consumer interest groups condemn the move by Internet Service Provider T-Online Rt to cancel the subscriptions of its top 50 subscribers in terms of downloading volume, Magyar Hírlap reports. The company, which gave a 60 day notice as set out in the contract, cited economic reasons for the move, saying that such users inflict substantial financial losses on the company, which is then forced to recoup these on the prices charged less download intensive subscribers. Consumer pressure groups criticize the move because the subscriptions in question were advertised and sold as flat-rate unlimited volume subscriptions.
