AT&T to Throttle Heaviest Data Hogs
So does this mean we can opt out of contract??
I can tell you from personal experience the old line "change of terms will get you out of your contract" simply does not work.
Besides that, the terms aren't changing. Any cell contract (and btw if yours are with at&t you can view them on your online acct) of any of the major carriers always carry this clause (or similar): carrier does not guarentee service in all areas at all times, does not guarentee data speeds. So, changing your speed is not a breach of contract.
If you have unlimited data, there's a good chance you could have benefited from increased data speeds in the past years and in the future. Don't hear anyone crying foul over that.
I am an AT&T account rep and I deal directly with customers that try...
We may change any terms, conditions, rates, fees, expenses, or charges regarding your Services at any time. We will provide you with notice of material changes (other than changes to governmental fees, proportional charges for governmental mandates, roaming rates or administrative charges) either in your monthly bill or separately. You understand and agree that State and Federal Universal Service Fees and other governmentally imposed fees, whether or not assessed directly upon you, may be increased based upon the government's or our calculations....
IF WE INCREASE THE PRICE OF ANY OF THE SERVICES TO WHICH YOU SUBSCRIBE, BEYOND THE LIMITS SET FORTH IN YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE SUMMARY, OR IF WE MATERIALLY DECREASE THE GEOGRAPH
Which carrier is?
And for the record, I am not a Troll. Just a fan Boi! Offering a sensible solution to forum participants who are outraged by AT&T's and VZ
