AT&T Hit With Major Fine For Slowing Internet Speeds

AT&T is being hit with a $100 million fine for offering customers unlimited data, but then slowing their internet speeds after they hit a certain amount of data.

The Federal Communications Commission says the company misled consumers.

Company workers say AT&T would dramatically slow speeds to levels lower than advertised at times.

AT&T plans to dispute the allegations.

The company says they’ve been up front with customers from the beginning.

They also say the FCC has known for years that major carriers slow data as a way to manage networks.
