Telstra has been fined $102,000 after the competition watchdog ruled that an iPhone advertisement misrepresented the price of the phone and plan bundle to consumers.

Australia’s largest telecommunications provider has paid the fine for a full-page advertisement that appeared in Fairfax Media’s The Age newspaper on September 27.
