ACCC slaps $102,000 fine on Telstra for misleading iPhone 6 advertisement

CANBERRA: There will be slightly less merriment for Telstra this Christmas, after the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) slapped the telco with a $102,000 fine for a misleading iPhone 6 advertisement.

The ad appeared in The Age plugging the iPhone 6 on Telstra’s Mobile Accelerate plan, but the ACCC has concluded Telstra misrepresented the bundle’s pricing.

Featuring a prominent $70 per month price, closer inspection of the ad’s fine print revealed an additional $11 per month mobile repayment option, bringing the actual monthly total to $81.
