AT&T is rejecting the notion that it should be paying the $100 million fine issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) over charges that the wireless carrier deceived its customers over its unlimited wireless data plans.
When you offer unlimited data, you should provide unlimited data. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) continues to impose that rule by fining mobile virtual network operator TracFone $40 million for throttling the data speeds of its subscribers.
According to the FTC, TracFone has misled its subscribers by advertising plans with unlimited data and then slowing down the data speeds (and in some cases, even shut down the data) when customers go beyond a certain amount of gigabytes of data per month.
