AT&T Wants to Throttle My Unlimited Data Plan!
This morning I received a very disturbing text message from my friends at good 'ol AT&T. Their message was simple read this way:
ATT Free Msg: Your data usage has reached 3GB this month. Using more than 3GB in future billing cycles will result in reduced speeds. You can yadda yadda yadda...
This is the AT&T FU Data Message, as I read it:
Dear valueless AT&T customer, we realize that you signed a contract with us that started several years ago, and although you have 5 active devices with us and pay us in excess of $2500 a year in service plan fees that include an "UNLIMITED DATA PLAN" we are going to tighten the bandwidth thumbscrews on you and limit the speed in which we serve you. FU, have a nice day.
The Unlimited Data Plan contract I signed said just that, Unlimited Data In no place on that contract did it say "If we want to change the contract later on we can" because that is just, well, plain UNAMERICAN, and scummy. So at some later date, they, behind my back, renegotiated my contract to read, we can change the contract as we see fit.
In response to AT&T, I found it fitting that if their contract had an imaginary clause that said they can chage terms, well, then isn't it fair that my contract has some imaginary clauses, too?
- AT&T, if you throttle down my data rate , how's about I throttle down the rate in which I pay you?
- I deduct $1.00 off of my bill for every dropped call? Chances are, you'd owe me money at the end of the month.
- Every day the "No Service" message comes up, I prorate off that days charge.
- When my phone says E(dge) vs 3G in a confirmed 3G metro area, I pay you the proportional rate of bandwidth delivery, or about 20% of my plan rate.
- I charge you $75-100 per hour, my approximate book rate, whenever you make me wait to speak to one of those outsourced Indian service people that you can't understand, divided into 6 minute billing, of course. And 2 days of free service when ever that freaking call gets dropped.
AT&T if you want to continue collecting my money, I think it is wise choice for you to continue delivering the Unlimited Data Plan WE agreed to. Additionally, you should take some of that money and set up some cell towers that actually deliver uninterrupted cell service. Otherwise, you may find me changing my contract to CANCELLED.

If you want more Followers, More Email and More Spam Apparently Twitter-Train is the Answer.
Twitter-train.com claims it will get you more followers, more traffic and more popularity.
