Australian consumer body to examine affordability of basic NBN products

Monday 14 October 2019 | 16:55 CET | News
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) said it will examine the affordability of basic NBN products. In related news, the Federal Court dismissed the ACCC's recent consumer law case against Australian operator TPG, finding that representations made by TPG Internet (TPG) about prepayments customers had to make in its internet, home telephone and mobile plans were not false or misleading, and that a term in its contracts which allowed TPG to keep prepaid funds when customers exited their plans was not unfair.
