Hungary's Competition Office (GVH) on Thursday said it fined telecommunications company Digi HUF 190 million for not informing clients about certain features relating to the speed of its gigabit internet service, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
GVH found that Digi did not alert customers that in order to reach promised connection speeds, their own devices must also meet certain technical requirements.
Digi acknowledged the violations, waived the possibility of an appeal, and undertook to develop its corporate compliance program, leading to reducing its fine by 60%.
