AT&T Data Plans Could Alientate Average Users

AT&T’s new data plans for iPads, iPhones and other smart phones may alienate some average users, said Professor Hemant Bhargava. “Since normal users do not know how much data they will consume, they feel forced to pick the higher-priced plans, in order to avoid the very expensive overage charges,” he said. “AT&T needs a way to ‘throttle’ or ‘choke’ heavy users without hurting everyone else.”
