Optus latest telco to be stung for misleading advertising

CFA welcomes recent action by the ACCC to respond to misleading advertising in the communications sector.

In July the Federal Court  ordered Optus to pay $5.26 million in civil pecuniary penalties for breaches of the Trade Practices Act through the advertising of  various broadband internet plans. In recent months, the ACCC has successfully taken enforcement actions against a number of telecommunications companies for misleading and deceptive practices in advertising.
