AT&T Fined $60 Million for Selling Unlimited Data Plans That Were Not Unlimited. Imagine That.

In a somewhat follow up to our post the other day. AT&T has now been fined $60 Million for throttling customers who purchased “Unlimited” plans from the carrier. Some people reported up to 95% slower speeds with as low as 2gb of data usage. The FTC has assessed a fine of $60 Million that will be used for partial refunds to affected customer’s. This goes exactly in line with what I was talking about. Now the industry has changed a little in the fact that its a bit easier to find the info about when and why they will throttle you but they are still not offering “UNLIMITED” service because its not possible!
