Telstra warned on overcharging

Warning comes after the telco self-reported the $30m mistake last year.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) has issued Telstra (TLS) a formal warning for incorrectly billing customers with its international roaming charges.

The warning comes after the telco turned itself into the regulator last November, saying that it overcharged 260,000 customers for a combined total of over $30 million for using 3G and 4G services overseas between 2006 and 2012.
