ASA rules against Vodacom data transfer advertisement

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) reviewed the complaint of a consumer in case of the latest advertising campaign released by the telecom major.

The consumer complaint had urged that Vodacom cannot term this as a gift as consumers are not allowed to gift their unused bandwidth to other users. One has to purchase additional data and gift it.
