Oh, Irony. How I Love Thee? Let Me Count the Ways... (More AT&T Fail)

As I wrote my last blog post on AT&T’s throttling, I noticed this interesting-placed ad for AT&T on TUAW

“Only AT&T’s network lets your iPhone 4S download 3x faster” OH REALLY? Not if you go over 3GB of usage in a month, apparently…. Come on, AT&T. Yes, bandwidth is a finite resource. But if you’re going to advertise how kickass your network is in one breath while telling us unlimited folks how we’re going to be HAMSTRUNG if we use too much of your service… BITE ME. At least bump us “unlimited” folks to your 5GB with tethering plan (your maximum current plan). You could make this a total win, PR-wise, and you could actually have some possible customer retention by doing so. Instead… #fail.
