The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced the Next Generation Wireless Disclosure Act, which would require all 4G carriers to provide more details about their minimum 4G speeds. California Democrat and bill sponsor Anna Eshoo told Macworld that “Consumers deserve to know exactly what they’re getting for their money when they sign-up for a 4G data plan”. This is very true because all customers certainly have the right to know what to expect when buying a new service, such as internet with bandwidth specifications.
If passed, this bill would force carriers to reveal possible bandwidth fluctuations and stats, including the slowest 4G can be. Hopefully, this action will help customers purchase a new smartphone data plan easier with reassurance of detailed information on what they will receive.
