If you have AT&T's unlimited data plan, it may not be as "unlimited" as you originally thought. Your data plan is secretly being throttled, or slowed down, once you hit a certain data usage limit. The Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, discovered AT&T's scheme and it is making sure the company is brought to justice.
The FCC announced that it is fining the massive telecommunications company a whopping $100 million for limiting its customers' data bandwidth speeds without the customers' knowledge. This fine was the culmination of a years-long investigation into AT&T's deception of its customers.
AT&T isn't backing down though; it says it is going to fight this enormous fine. The company issued a statement saying, "We will vigorously dispute the FCC's assertions. The FCC has specifically identified this practice as a legitimate and reasonable way to manage network resources for the benefit of all customers, and has known for years that all of the major carriers use it."
