From The Washington Times:

Tom Struble, an expert on telecoms, antitrust and consumer privacy issues at the R Street Institute, which opposes the bill, told The Washington Times that he hadn’t seen many signs of abuse right now, suggesting the push for action was overblown.

He said one incident — when Verizon throttled a California fire department’s data plan last August — was a customer service mistake, and it turned out the department was on the wrong type of plan.

While the issue might have violated other FCC rules for deceptive practices, it wasn’t a net neutrality violation, he argued.
