MyRepublic fined $25.2k for misleading NBN advertising by ACCC

NBN provider MyRepublic Pty Ltd (MyRepublic) has paid penalties totalling $25,200 following the ACCC issuing two infringement notices for alleged false or misleading representations about its NBN service performance.

The ACCC has pinged MyRepublic for not making it clear enough that the 50 & 100 “speed tier” doesn’t reflect your speed all the time.

The footnote apparently isn’t big enough or clear enough to potential customers under the new NBN advertising guidelines put into place.
