Although Teleankenævnet formally provides only three customers in that they now have the requirement of 1000 kroner in compensation from the Oister, so should a larger number be compensated, believe It Think.
the Case goes back to 2017, when Oister suddenly ran from an earlier promise that a large group of customers should never have to pay more for their subscription.
And the new decision from a unanimous teleankenævn is quite principled.
- Now it is settled, that the company is not just a promise, it is unrealistic to live up to. And that it has a cash consequence, if you do it, says the chief economist and teleanalytiker of the Consumer council Think, Martin Salamon, to Ekstra Bladet.
He sits himself in the tribunal and has participated in the consideration of the matter, but shall not, solely as the representative of the Consumer council Think. And in that role, he is not in doubt that the Oister should contact all customers, which in its time was promised a subscription with the same price for always.
- Oister has promised all customers from the time that they would get a fixed price for the always.
- When they fail to live up to that promise, they must of course pay compensation to the whole of its customer base and not just to those who now have been upheld, believes Martin Salamon.

Oister rejected, however, on Wednesday afternoon, that the company intend to compensate anyone other than the three customers, who just have been right.
His advice to customers is therefore clear.
- So one must write to the company and ask for compensation.
- And if they do not pay - as in other cases, where one does not believe to have got the right - you can make a complaint to the Teleankenævnet over the rejection.
Martin Salamon estimates that the matter is far from obsolete. This means that even customers who have not complained, rightly, can claim that they have been waiting for the decision, which now has come.
