If I can’t do it on all the old plans, I’ll let customers migrate to the new plans.

Gebara also said that Vivo should only reverse the transfer of the tax to tariffs if the Federal Supreme Court (STF) takes a decision against cutting the rates. This is because the governors filed an action to reverse the initiative of São Paulo and Goiás.
