AT&T Ups Throttling Threshold to 3GB
Unlimited is Unlimited
Although At&t has an iron clad protection against class actions lawsuits built into their terms and conditions. One man successfully SUED BIG BLUE and won an $850 claim. (big blue is currently appealing this) ... All because of at&t throttleing practices on their estimated 17 million "unlimited data" subscribers .

My statement was to argue that just because a court says something is wrong or right doesn't mean that it is.
It was a small claims court action.
If the defendant does not appear, the plaintiff is awarded, no matter what the merits of the suit if the Judge allows it to go forward.
The wording of the contract will get it dismissed on appeal most likely.
EX. Dsl or Cable internet runs slower when more people are on it for a given line.
So at some point data has to be throttled whether it is the entirety of the data itself or a certain type of data (ex. My DSL provider slows torrent downloads)
