Quick update on AT&T throttling unlimited users. AT&T customer Matt Spaccarelli took AT&T to small claims court over the issue and a judge in Simi Valley California ruled in favor of Matt, awarding him $850 and describing AT&T’s data throttling of unlimited customers as deceptive. The AP reports “That means thousands — and possibly hundreds of thousands — of people who feel abused by AT&T’s policy could seek to challenge the company, one by one, in arbitration or small claims court.”
I spoke with Spaccarelli about his case. He plans to post a kit designed to help others in our situation throughout the process of filing and winning a small claims suit against AT&T as well. Spaccarelli’s case sets a precedent in this issue and I intend to file against AT&T as well. Hopefully many others do too.
