FTC files complaint in federal court against AT&T for throttling

The FTC has filed a complaint against AT&T in federal court that alleges AT&T Mobility has misled millions of smartphone customers by charging them for so-called unlimited data plans while reducing data speeds. The FTC says that in some cases AT&T reduced data speeds by nearly 90%. AT&T failed to adequately disclose to customers on unlimited data plans that if they hit a certain amount of data use, speeds would be throttled according to the FTC complaint.

Motorola device in FCC might be DROID Turbo for AT&T, T-Mobile

However, it could also be something less spectacular but not entirely uninteresting to some users: a DROID Turbo/Quark not for Verzion but for its rivals AT&T and T-Mobile.
