Court Rules for FTC in Suit Against AT&T Over Internet Throttling

A full panel of a California appeals court ruled that the Federal Trade Commission may push forward with a lawsuit alleging that AT&T Inc. was deceptive in slowing internet speeds to customers with unlimited plans. The FTC sued AT&T in 2014 on the grounds that the No. 2 U.S. wireless carrier failed to inform consumers it would slow, or “throttle,” the speeds of heavy data users on unlimited plans.
