AT&T Rejects $100M Fine From FCC

It must be nice to be a huge company that can just "reject" $100 million fines because you don't agree with it. The next time I get a speeding ticket, I'm going to "reject" the fine and see what happens. roll eyes (sarcastic)

AT&T refuses to pay the FCC the $100 million fine it got slapped with, claiming that it didn't keep data throttling a secret from its subscribers at all. Ma Bell was given with such a hefty penalty, because the agency determined that it slowed down subscribers' "unlimited" internet connections after they've used a particular amount of data without letting them know.
