Senators Introduce "Truth in 4G" Bill
A bill has been introduced in the U.S. Senate aimed at getting wireless companies to be honest in what they call "4G."
The bill was introduced last week by Sens. Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar (both Democrats from Minnesota) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) The Next Generation Wireless Disclosure Act is similar to a bill introduced in the House last summer by Rep. Anna Eshoo of California.
"While wireless data makes it easier for people all over Minnesota to do their jobs and to access music, movies, and books from virtually anywhere, it's important that consumers know what they'll be paying for when they sign a contract," Sen. Franken said in a statement. "Wireless providers need to make sure their customers can count on the speed, reliability, and the price they were promised when they signed up. And if they can't fulfill their promise, they need to be held accountable."
