Tell AT&T That Data Caps Are Absolutely Unacceptable

    1. Petition by

      Andrew H

      Maryville, TN

It was announced on March 14 that AT&T would join their telecom peers in begining to limit the amount of data that AT&T DSL and AT&T U-verse Internet customers can consumer every month to 150 GB and 250 GB, respectively. 

By capping our internet usage, AT&T will be preventing us from making the most of today's wonderful streaming video technologies, such as Netflix, Amazon streaming, YouTube, Hulu, and more. 

AT&T claims that this has everything to do with ensuring the best experience for all its users, though, AT&T is expempting their own video services from this arbitrary cap. 

Tell AT&T enough is enough. Data caps are unfair and, at best, nothing more than unfair business practices that benefit no one.

      This is completely unacceptable. Why should I pay more for using the service I am already paying for 24x7 at full capacity?

      I bought a smart phone so that I could have access to the internet and do as I please with out having to constantly watch how much data I'm using and not going over my allotted amount. I have the lowest plan available for $15 but I can't seem to bring myself to pay $25 for 2GB, I'd gladly pay $30 for unlimited like all of my friends do for their iPhones, but since I bought after you put the squeeze on the consumer. It should be AT&T's responsibility to have a larger network in place if you plan on selling phones that use the network. Maybe Sprint will make me a happy consumer, so much for being a loyal customer to AT&T all of these years!!

      Been an Att/Bellsouth customer for over 10 years now, and this is crazy! There's no need for a data cap.

      The instant I get a bill for going over a cap , I will cancel my AT&T dsl. Dsl/t1/t3 lines have been unlimited for 15+ years. We pay as if we use. That bandwidth 24/7/365. Upgrade your backbone to handle more users vs screwing your current nes
