AT&T to crackdown on "data hogs"
If you're a heavy data user on the AT&T wireless network, you've been warned. The carrier confirms it will begin slowing down the connection of so-called "data hogs," starting in October.
This only applies to customers who still have an unlimited data plan purchased before AT&T discontinued it.
The company says it has to resort to throttling to protect other network users from slow-downs.
This move comes before the next version of the Apple iPhone is expected, which could lead to a crush of data demand.
