T-Mobile US told to modify claims of 'best' 5G network

Wednesday 24 February 2021 | 11:13 CET | News
The US National Advertising Division (NAD) has told T-Mobile US to modify claims implying that its merger with Sprint generated immediate benefits. The adverts at issue highlight "the best 5G network," the "most reliable 5G network," and the "best prices" for 5G service. The NAD noted that the complete integration of the T-Mobile and Sprint network will take 3-6 years and that the ads did not specify that the benefits to be expected will be in the future and not immediately available.
