Eshoo sweating the Gs
Wednesday, Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) introduced The Next Generation Wireless Disclosure Act which would require carriers to tell consumers more details about how fast and reliable their 4G networks are. It would also make the FCC in charge of determining how fast the carriers' data service is.
"Consumers deserve to know exactly what they're getting for their money when they sign-up for a 4G data plan," Eshoo said.
"But consumers need to know the truth about the speeds they're actually getting. My legislation is simple -- it will establish guidelines for understanding what 4G speed really is, and ensure that consumers have all the information they need to make an informed decision."
