When Is Unlimited Quite Limited?
from the truth-in-advertising? dept
Last year there was a lot of attention to Comcast’s “unlimited” cable modem service that had some very real limits, even if Comcast won’t tell you what they are. Despite calls for Comcast to change that policy, they’ve kept at it. It seems that AT&T Wireless is taking a similar approach. Their recently announced Mobile Internet Unlimited PDA Plan actually appears to have some very real limits. The fine print points out that if you use over 100 MB in two consecutive months, they’ll shift you to a much more expensive plan. 100 MB is not very much at all, and it’s hardly “unlimited.” It seems like that’s false advertising.
