As has 1&1 well their mouth off about something: The Higher Regional Court of Cologne classified with the "best network" advertiser campaign of the provider to be misleading.

The telecommunications company 1&One must not with the statement "The best network's at 1&1" advertise. The advertising campaign was misleading, the Higher Regional Court (OLG) Cologne decided, according to Wednesday. With the injunction, the court a request of Deutsche Telekom place was. (Reference 6 W 97/17)

The advertising at issue can be understood that one&1 own independent network from other providers possess, the court found. In fact, the company grab much on the networks of other providers - including the Telekom - back and use them. In addition, the 6th Civil Chamber prohibited the companies from Montabaur to use the registered trademark of Deutsche Telekom, in advertising.

1&1 had in August and September in print media, on billboards, on the Internet and television with the "best network" advertised. The advertisement follows a 1 abseil&One representative of a starting Hochhausfassade to cover a telecom poster with their own advertising. The Court of Appeal decision of 19 September is not yet final.(AP) /(Axk)
