FCC Eyes The Big Business Wrangle Of AT&T's Sponsored Data FeatureSounding alarm bells that the proposed AT&T Sponsored Data feature sounds really too good to be true, it comes as no surprise that chairman Tom Wheeler from the FCC came forward at the Consumer Electronics Show on Wednesday. He delivered this cautionary tale to oversee AT&T’s  big business strategic move to coax customers into thinking they are receiving a bargain:

“My attitude is, let’s take a look at what this is,” Wheeler began, “Let’s take a look at how it operates. If it interferes with the operation of the internet, if it develops into an anti-competitive practice, if it does have some kind of preferential treatment given somewhere, then that is cause for us to intervene.”
