According to the assessment of the Competition Council the practice described above yields an unfair surplus revenue to Vodafone and at the same time burdens subscribers initiating calls from any other networks with an unjustified additional charge. Therefore the Competition Council prohibited the continuation of the illegal conduct, but allowed a 90 days` extension for Vodafone to implement the decision. In this case the Council imposed no fine. The three months ensured by the Competition Council for the elimination of the unlawful situation must be long enough for Vodafone to eliminate the unlawful situation in a way it considers the most favourable.
