Vodafone Hungary fined for false advertising

18 Nov 2014

Mobile provider Vodafone Hungary has been fined HUF125 million (USD510,119) by the country’s Competition Authority (GVH) for what the Budapest Business Journal cites as ‘unfair advertising’; during 2013 Vodafone’s Hungarian arm made declarations of its mobile network being the best and fastest in the country, but according to GVH: ‘peculiarities of mobile internet (transfer technology, network load, environmental factors) do not allow legitimate, objective comparison of network speed.’
