An appeals court has tossed a lawsuit filed against AT&T over its throttling practices. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission alleged that AT&T deceived customers by throttling their unlimited data plans once those customers exceeded a certain amount of data in a given month. During its investigation, the FTC found AT&T slowed some users' speeds by as much as 90%. AT&T argued that common carriers, such as itself, are to be granted exceptions, and the appeals court agreed. AT&T may still face action over the same issue from the FCC, which believes AT&T may have violated its net neutrality rules.
