According to the report by Senator Acir Gurgacz (PDT/RO), the proposal is in accordance with the National Consumer Relations Policy, which seeks, among other objectives, to protect the economic interests of consumers and avoid abusive practices and clauses in the supply of products and services.

The report that was read by the senator ad hocStyvenson Valentim (PODE/RN), also mentioned that there is abusiveness in the unequal treatment by telecommunications companies to users of the service, since it is not transparent about the partial use of the product.

“When the user exceeds the contracted monthly limit, he is obliged to purchase additional packages. On the other hand, when the consumer does not fully use the contracted quantities, he loses the right to use the balances in the future, which is not fair,” he explained.

The senators understood that there is no difficulty in implementing balance control, as companies already monitor users’ consumption, including for the purpose of collecting packages or additional credits.
