Vodafone has finally blocked for all VAS services

This initiative was taken by the popular telephone operator in execution of an AGCOM provision, which stipulated that all mobile customers must be protected from this type of service.
Certain services are not included in the automatic block, such as donations, Mobile Ticketing, PEC services, banking information services, televoting, postal services and electronic certified delivery services.
