Customers affected by the error passed on the email to ZDNet Australia earlier today, expressing concern over the breach of privacy.

The email sighted by ZDNet Australia appears to have been sent out to around 500 addresses advising customers that their bill was ready for viewing. The message contained the email addresses of what looks to be many of TPG's business customers in the "To" field.

TPG declined to comment to ZDNet Australia on the error.
