Movistar announced this Wednesday a new evolution of the Fusion rates that they launched on the market almost a decade ago. The main novelty is that, from now on, all the company’s convergent packages will include a “free” smartphone in the pack. That is to say: Fusion rates now group mobile lines, fixed lines, television content and smartphones.
With this move the operator seeks to contribute to the take-off of its 5G network –For which you need a compatible smartphone– while increasing the revenue from each of your customers.
One of the keys to this ad is that the price of all the Movistar Fusion rates will rise by approximately three euros. Customers, if they wish, can give up the phone included in the package, but will not receive a discount for it.
Another of the data to take into account is that none of the new rates has an associated permanence commitment, something that has characterized the Fusion packages in recent years. However, if the customer has decided to take one of the smartphones included in the package and, before the agreed 36 months, decides to leave the company, they will have to pay a penalty based on the value of the mobile they have purchased. According to Cinco Días, the user will also have the option of returning the terminal.
