F.C.C. to Fine AT&T for Slowing Data Speeds of Some Customers - The New York Times

Perhaps a $100M net neutrality warning shot

"By slowing the speed of service without disclosing it to consumers, the agency said, AT&T violated a 2010 rule that required greater openness to customers. It is the first time the F.C.C. has accused a company of violating that rule, and the fine is the largest ever proposed by the agency.

Wednesday’s announcement also raises new questions about whether the agency will take a more aggressive stance toward wireless and landline Internet service providers after even stricter disclosure requirements took effect last Friday. The new requirements are part of the F.C.C. rules approved in February that regulate broadband Internet service more like a utility."
