The Commerce Commission is warning business that their products must live up to their marketing hype after Telecom was fined $500,000 in the Auckland District Court after pleading guilty to 17 charges of breaching the Fair Trading Act.
The charges relate to claims made in 2006 in advertising of Xtra's Go Large broadband plan, including that the plan offered "unlimited data usage and all the internet you can handle".
Telecom co-operated fully with the commission's investigation and has voluntarily paid around $8.4 million in compensation to about 97,000 affected customers.
What are your experiences with Telecom's broadband infrastructure?
