I am not convinced by that answer.

The market in the U.S. is not the same as what we
see in Mauritius. You'll probably find
organizations over there with legal advisors to
dispute internet-related issues. Is there any
organization doing that in Mauritius?

As for misleading advertising, the government
agency responsible for consumer protection
ignored the problem. That agency does not seem
to know what to do when the consumer problem is
about services. The ICTA has not shown any
interest in discussing about "Fair Usage" or "unlimited" with consumers.
