A decide awarded an iPhone user from Californai $850 after filling a small claim about throttling on AT&T network, $85 for each of 10 months left on his contract instead of 10,000 the man requested, Associated press reported. Like many users who had been on the $30 unlimited Data plan, representing half of AT&T network, Spaccerelli noticed that AT&T is download was slowing down as it was reaching the two gigabytes data.
Spaccarelli said his phone is being throttled after he’s used 1.5 gigabytes to 2 gigabytes of data within a new billing cycle. Meanwhile, AT&T provides 3 gigabytes of data to subscribers on a tiered plan that costs the same — $30 per month.
Nadel's ruling could pave the way for others to follow suit. AT&T has some 17 million customers with "unlimited data" plans that can be subject to throttling, representing just under half of the company's smartphone users.
An AT&T spokesman said that the company will apeal the judge' ruling and it was unfair. Although those plan are no longer offered but the ones that had it before it was cancelled, still have it. If the ruling stays, some people might go after AT&T for throttling their data.
