FTC Sues AT&T Over Data “Throttling”
On October 28, 2014, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced it has brought a case against AT&T Mobility over the cellular carrier’s practice of data “throttling.” The FTC complaint alleges that AT&T sells consumers “unlimited” data plans; then, once the consumer hits a certain usage cap for the billing cycle, AT&T throttles the data speed down to the point that it becomes difficult or almost impossible for the consumer to access the Internet.
