The Federal Court has ordered Optus to pay $5.26m in penalties for misleading customers in the advertising of its fixed network broadband plans, following an action brought against Optus by the ACCC.
Rather than having to take Optus to court the ACCC has used the new consumer protection laws to hit Optus with 27 penalties totalling $178,200 for making false and misleading representations in its advertisements for its 'Max Cap' plans. Optus says it eleccted to pay the fines, without admitting guilt, rather than contest the matter in court.
Communications minister Stephen Conroy has launched a surprise -and speedy - review of the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman Scheme, saying that the TIO latest statistics reveal complaints at an unacceptable level.
