Public Knowledge said yesterday that legislation by Sen. Tom Udall (D-NM) to curb wireless bill shock “will go a long way toward protecting consumers by shielding them from excessive overage charges and service fees.”
In a letter to Udall, PK President and Co-Founder Gigi B. Sohn said that the government’s role in protecting consumers “cannot be overstated.” She noted that the investigation into Verizon’s overcharging of consumers and subsequent refunds shows that actions must be taken to clarify potential fees to consumers.
