GVH fines Magyar Telekom Ft 100 mln for misleading advertising

Competition

The Competition Office (GVH) announced on Monday it had fined Magyar Telekom Nyrt, Hungary's incumbent telco, Ft 100 million because its mobile phone division misled customers.
The GVH said Magyar Telekom's wireless division, which operates under the name T-Mobile, had advertised a subscriber package with per-minute and text-message charges of just Ft 15, a fraction of the regular charges. However, T-Mobile failed to note in the advertisements that the text-message charges were only for those sent within Hungary, and that the per-minute voice charges were only for off-peak calls made to landline telephones within Magyar Telekom's network.
