An iPhone user in Southern California, won their lawsuit filed against AT&T in small claims court for the throttling of “Unlimited” plan usage. The user, sued AT&T after being throttled each month after using 1.5 to 2gb of data. However, AT&T’s users with the 3GB plan receive no such throttling in spite of the fact that the plans cost about the same.
The user, Matt Spaccarelli, won a judgement of $850 USD in the small claims court case after Judge Russell Nadel found in his favor. With seventeen million “Unlimited” plan users, AT&T could be in for a good number of cases in the future as more users take on the giant telecom company.
