CASE ENTRY

Federal Trade Commission v. AT&T Mobility LLC

Allegation: AT&T did not adequately inform customers who purchased unlimited iPhone data plans that it would slow down their service once they exceeded a certain data limit and without regard to any actual network congestion. Can the FTC sue AT&T for engaging in unfair or deceptive acts or practices, or is the company a “common carrier” exempted from FTC oversight? No exemption for you, says a Ninth Circuit en banc panel; throttling data isn’t a common carrier activity.
