AT&T has to pay out more than $60 million to customers that were duped by the company’s supposedly ‘unlimited’ data plan. In 2014, AT&T was sued by the FTC for claiming its wireless plan offered ‘unlimited’ data, when it actually throttled down data speeds after as little as two gigabytes. The $60 million settlement will go towards partial refunds for AT&T customers who signed up for the plan prior to 2011. DON’T THROTTLE ME, BRO!
AT&T has agreed to pay a $60 million fine centered around secretly throttled unlimited plans in 2011.
The good news: People don't have to fill out forms to get reimbursed.
The bad news: Throttling is alive and well and this won't do anything to stop it. https://t.co/zqRQtmaOJf
