T-DSL advertising by Telekom prohibited

Due to a preliminary injunction that the Cologne network operator Netcologne was able to enforce before the Cologne Regional Court, Telekom is not allowed to advertise its T-DSL Internet connection as before. The reason is false statements in the advertising of the telephone giant.

The advertising slogan “T-DSL, everyone can surf at top speed, including you!” Has caused criticism here, because T-DSL is not for everyone is available. In the opinion of the court, there was also something to be denounced in the advertising brochures, which could be found in almost every newspaper lately. There it says that the loading time from T-Online.de with T-DSL only takes one second, but the company cannot guarantee that. In the event that Telekom violates this advertising ban, there will be a fine of a quarter of a million euros.
