Washington, DC - A rental car company prominently advertises “unlimited mileage.” You rent from them and everything is going fine until you’ve done a few hours of highway driving. That’s when the company tells you it’s changed its unlimited mileage policy. Since you’ve traveled more than 100 miles, they've restricted it so the car you contracted for won't accelerate over 30. The analogy isn’t perfect, of course, but it offers a broad-stroke introduction to the FTC’s complaint against AT&T Mobility for data throttling - the company’s practice of marketing “unlimited” smartphone data plans, but then restricting the data speed of customers who use more than a few gigabytes of data in a billing cycle.
