We love to say “wait for it…..” especially when it means money in your pocket.
In our earlier blog, we discussed the terms “unlimited” and “throttling” and discuss the on-going lawsuits here.
The FTC claims ATT misled subscribers by stating wireless plans were “unlimited” when they were actually throttled data. ATT failed to inform users about throttling plans which would provide dramatic slowdowns after a data threshold was hit. The lawsuit alleged that, in some cases, data speeds were slowed by as much as 90%, making them more or less useless during that current billing cycle and certainly not unlimited.
Throttling is in the eye of the Marketer
Plans to cut subscriber speeds if they downloaded too much data during a billing cycle wasn’t clearly disclosed and therefore ATT violated the concept of having an “unlimited data” plan.
The settlement was reached on August 2 2019 but the the penalties not yet been disclosed. There is a stay for 90 days so we should hear the terms of the settlement in late November.
Because we are still …..
