  2. In the same announcement, the company must clarify that AVANTEL is a different company from PARTNERS TELECOM COLOMBIA S.A.S. and its brand name WOM.
  3. Confirm which customer service channels are available to advertise their services and respond to requests, complaints and claims from their users.

This request is immediately enforceable, and no appeal could be made against it. Failure to comply will result with sanctions of up to one thousand (1,000) current legal monthly minimum wages.
