AT&T to pay $60 million over claims about misleading ’unlimited’ data plans

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) announced on Tuesday that AT&T has agreed to pay $60 million to settle a legal dispute over allegations that the telco misled more than 3.5 million customers by charging them for ’unlimited’ data plans while reducing their data speeds. The settlement resolves a 2014 lawsuit with the FTC.

Its called fraud and its a crime. If the average joe did it and got caught we would go to jail, so if corporations are people too as the supreme court said why doesn't the CEO go to jail?
