DIGI slapped with hefty fine for misleading gigabit info

23 Aug 2022

Hungary’s Competition Authority (Gazdassgi Versenyhivatal [GVH]) has fined DIGI Hungary HUF190 million (USD466,000) for failure to inform customers about certain features relating to the speed of its gigabit fibre internet service, reports the Budapest Business Journal. GVH found that DIGI, part of the 4iG group, did not alert users that in order to reach promised connection speeds, their own devices must meet certain technical requirements. DIGI acknowledged the violations, waived its right to appeal, and undertook to develop its corporate compliance programme, leading to reducing its fine by 60%.
