AT&T to settle alleged data throttling in unlimited data plans

The Federal Trade Commission has filed a lawsuit against AT&T alleging the company has deceived its unlimited data plan customers by throttling their data speeds.

Cell phone giant AT&T has been charged by the Federal Trade Commission with allegations of misleading millions of smartphone customers over ‘unlimited’ data plans. In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, the FTC accused the wireless carrier of slowing down the data speeds of unlimited data customers dramatically once they exceeded a certain amount of usage. According to the FTC, AT&T has throttled over 3.5 million unlimited data customers without notifying them properly. In some worst cases, the data speeds were reduced by as much as 90 percent.
