    I will happily accept the money from the class action lawsuit, though. When's that happening?
    No time soon, AT&T intends to contest this further (I have no idea exactly what that means though.)

    Yep, everyone here is saying "yeah, fine ATT!" But in the end, it's the government taking more of our money.

    You will get about 3 cents, while the lawyers will rake in millions for their cut.

    Superb thread. Stand against the cartels.
    Actually, this does nothing of the sort. Doesn't matter what ATT did. Illegal behavior, like from Pirate Bay, is illegal behavior. Not amount of justification changes that.

    I disagree with this ruling.

    I am sick of the government running the private industry.

    If AT&T wants to call something unlimited and then give less, then let the people figure it out and leave AT&T in droves...forcing them to do as they say are doing.

    But forcing the government to give them fines often means their customers do not bother leaving them (as it is often too inconvenient) since they feel like the government will keep them in line.

    This big brother crap is slowly destroying free enterprise.

    We are talking about data speeds - not food or antibiotics. No one is going to die because it took longer for them to download a movie on Netflix.


    LET THE BUYER BEWARE.

    I can monitor my own download speeds/performance, I don't need the government budding in where they are not needed.

    All this Big Brother monitoring does is make everyone lazy. Instead of actively monitoring the performance of their products/services, consumers are increasingly becoming more and more dependent on the government to do it for them and trusting that they are not in cahoots with the big corporations they claim to be keeping tabs on...that is potentially dangerous.

    Do you really think the government is going to truly police any industry that is responsible for huge campaign contributions to their re-election campaigns?
