Exactly...is $700,000 even a factor compared to the numbers of users moved to metered data plans who will incur overages?

They should have also been forced to let affected users reinstate their unlimited data plans.

True but $700,000 to the government might as well be $5. The refunds are what's going to hurt at&t more.

The move is to get rid of unlimited and that's not going to change. let them back for what 6 months, a year, maybe 2?

Surely you jest. Didn't AT&T always claim that their data limits were tuned to meet the needs of an overwhelming majority of users. Didn't they claim that only a small percentage would pay more as a result of their new limits? If what AT&T said is true, how can this be a windfall?

And then those people will move on to another company.

Agreed, but the FCC isn't going to make that happen, it's too reasonable and consumer friendly. With ATT billing practices of adding on additional charges EVERY month, that 25-30 dollar credit will get eaten up rather quickly and in the end the customer is paying more for less than it was paying-ATT gets their way and kills off the grand-fathered accounts.

Not with a contract they won't. Do you really believe there are enough people not under a contract that it will make a difference if they leave? Then only under certain promotions made at certain times will the other carriers pay an ETF to gain customers. So that is out the window too.

Yet again AT&T will not have to actually cover their own cost for their own actions.

if att raises the rates to recoup, people will be able to drop them with no ETF, it's in you contract that you can ditch if there is a rate increase. people need to read contracts before signing them

They actually pulled that little sentence out ages ago. Also, just a reminder, but AT&T can and does change the ToS at will, any time they want, without notice to the customer.
