ACCC Takes Optus To Court Over “Unlimited” Broadband Plans

When Optus announced “unlimited/” broadband plans in that came with plenty of limitations, readers asked why the ACCC hadn’t intervened. Now it has, with a court hearing scheduled for June over its use of the phrase.

The ACCC's announcement of its case against Optus focuses on two examples: "unlimited" calls on the Turbo Max plan and the more general notion that an "unlimited" phone and broadband plan can't be called that if the "offers are subject to a number of limitations and restrictions". It's a reminder that unlimited downloads aren't likely in Australia any time soon.
