Re: Sprint Has No Choice

said by Go Tarheels:

Please tell me how they are engaging in false advertising? This was sloppy journalism at best and at worst an attemt to defame Sprint.

If the ads claim they don't throttle, then the CEO says they do, then what are people supposed to think?

Granted, the company says the CEO misspoke, but had be been correct, this would have been false advertising.

Actually, it wasn't the CEO who misspoke, it was a journalist who deliberately left out the word roaming. Also, one could make a legal argument, that throttling in itself doesn't violate the phrase unlimited data. Again, just saying legally, it could be argued, not that is what I agree with.

Indeed it doesn't, but Sprint's ads claim that no throttling takes place.
