Setting the Sonnet flat rate
The flat rate provider Sonnet also sets its flat rate according to Surf1 and MIC! According to Sonnet, this should only be provisional, because Sonnet simply cannot afford the flat rate due to the minute-based payments to Telekom.
A flat rate can only be financed if you ensure that the regulatory authority RegTP takes care of it. When this is done, Sonnet will probably start the flat rate again. According to its own statements, Sonnet had caught too many power users at the beginning and thus suffered losses in the double-digit million range. Most recently, the average online time was 3 hours a day. Since some users went to Sonnet due to the bankruptcy of Surf1, that was probably inevitable. Customers who have paid the flat rate in advance should get the fees back soon. The free e-mail and website service is not affected by the flat rate cut.
