By Adlane Fellah

Mobile Data Rates – Hype v. Reality

By Maury Wood

On June 17th, the FCC announced their intention to fine AT&T Mobility $100M for allegedly failing to notify their customers that their mobile data rates were throttled to  about 500 Kbps after certain data usage thresholds (3 GB of 3G data / 5 GB of 4G data) were exceeded.  In this context, it was widely reported that typical non-throttled AT&T Mobility data rates range from 15 to 20 Mbps.
