ASA Investigates Wanadoo 8Mbps Ad

Posted: 27th Jan, 2006 By: MarkJ
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has confirmed that it is investigating Wanadoo over adverts for its 8Mbps broadband service. Several consumers and three ISP's (BT, Bulldog and Tiscali) made complaints:

Although the exact details of the complaints have yet to be revealed, El Reg understands that they centre on claims about the speed of the service and its availability in the UK.

While Wanadoo UK has been advertising its 8MB service widely, it is only currently available in a limited number of areas where the ISP has invested in local loop unbundling.


Wanadoo has already stated that it will "comply with any recommendations" made by the ASA. We should find out more sometime next week (probably Wednesday morning). More @ The Register.
