The network with the logo that looks ominously like Star Wars‘ planet destroying Death Star is once again in the hot seat. An independent investigation recently took place about the way US wireless carriers are charging their customers for their data usage, and the results are damaging for AT&T.
The investigation, done using different carriers and different mobile devices, shows that even when not in use and every single data using app turned off, the iPhone 4 on the AT&T network used data 35 times. This information was confirmed by AT&T’s data usage statistics. This is potentially damaging to AT&T and could open up the former MA Bell network to class action law suits.
If you’ve been overcharged by your wireless carrier, do not remain silent. Let your voices be heard by speaking up here and sharing your experiences and, of course, report any discrepancies to your wireless carrier immediately.
