Wireless carriers are against the FCCs plan

I would bet that many of you have had the same issue I have gone though before with a wireless carrier. Long ago when I got my first mobile phone, I realized after getting a $500 bill that it doesn't take long to go over your allotted minutes when you are talking on the phone. The FCC is moving to propose rules that would force better communications between the wireless carrier and the consumer to prevent this sort of bill shock.

The FCC chairman will unveil his plan this week and outline what the FCC sees in the future of communications to make it easy for consumers to know when they are getting near their limits for data and voice. As it is, the users typically have to log into an account or go to the carrier website to see how much data they have used.

The FCC chairman did praise AT&T for its iPad system that has pop ups to warn the customer that they are nearing the limit of their plans. It would be easy to see the FCC forcing all carriers to use texts or pop ups as warnings when data fees are changed due to roaming or you are nearing plan limits.
