Vodafone Knocked For Misleading "Best" Claim

It seems like not a day goes by where some telecom company in the UK doesn’t get in trouble for some misleading advertisement. That sort of thing never happens in the US, where every company makes sure to announce they’re the “leading” company in whatever market they decide to define as their own. However, Vodafone has gotten in a bit of trouble for claiming they had the “best” mobile phone network by basing that claim on a study that only covered one area, and showed that Vodafone was 0.1% better than Orange. The 0.1% number apparently showed up in the fine print, though you can see why folks at Orange found this to be a bit misleading.
