So, on March 20 Jio had filed a complaint with ASCI, urging to take appropriate action against this misleading advertisement.
Finally, on 29 March, Fast Track Complaints Committee (FTCC) found that Airtel Ad is misleading and they informed Airtel to remove or modify Ad by 11 April 2017.
After this, Airtel Said that we are not agree with ASCI decision and will file an appeal as per guidelines.
ASCI points out some reasons to support their decision of declaring Airtel's Ad as misleading.
- It is also noted that Airtel’s TVC does not state that the speed results pertain to a specific period.
- TVC has visuals with reference to 4G, whereas Ad was not specific to 4G technology as per Advertiser's claim.
- In Advertisement, they shows poor signal strength for the other service provider. FTCC considered this representation to be misleading by ambiguity and implication.
- Airtel used term "OFFICIALLY" while their test was not based on any government organization or authority like TRAI, hence it is misleading.
Now, it is clear that Airtel's claim of being fastest network is false. So, here I want to show you some speed test results from TRAI myspeed website.
