+ - "Throttling" Broadband Provided Sued in Australia->

Submitted by destinyland
destinyland (578448) writes "Optus has been severely throttling users who exceed a download quota, according to ZDNet — down from 100Mbps to 64Kbps — and it's drawn attention from federal regulators. Optus's ad campaign promises "supersonic" speeds, and one technology blog notes that the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission "isn’t happy about Optus’ sensationalist claims, which it's sure breaches the Trade Practices Act." Australia's trade commission called the practice "misleading or deceptive," and the broadband provider now has a date in court next month, the second one since a June hearing over "unlimited" voice and data plans that actually had usage caps."
