TPG fined for misleading advertising

The Federal Court found TPG failed to prominently specify the minimum charge of a broadband package it advertised around the country. The action was brought by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

The conduct

In providing reasons for his judgement Justice Bernard Murphy noted "the conduct was in all seriousness misleading and affected a diverse class of users and potential users of broadband services".

Justice Murphy considered that a sizeable penalty was "necessary to make it clear to TPG and to the market that the cost of risking a contravention cannot be regarded as merely an acceptable cost of business".
