Polish regulator accuses T-Mobile of misleading advertising
UOKiK said on Monday that T-Mobile Polska’s slogan “1200 GB free for a year” was misleading as 100 GB Internet packages are given every month, for a maximum of 12 months, until the -consumer renews the offer periodically at a cost of at least 35 zlotys ($7.99).
“After reading the ad, the consumer should have a general, but realistic, idea of the offer presented,” UOKiK head Tomasz Chrostny said in a statement.
“The T-Mobile promotional slogan may suggest that you receive a one-time data package of 1200 GB, and not a dozen or so smaller packages, as long as the fee is paid periodically.”
T-Mobile Polska did not immediately respond to an e-mailed request for comment.
