STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER MIGNON L. CLYBURN
REGARDING LAUNCH OF FCC’S NEW “BILL SHOCK” WEBSITE“I am pleased to see that the Commission has launched its new “bill shock” website to help
consumers track implementation of recent commitments by wireless carriers to voluntarily provide
usage alerts before and after consumers exceed their plan limits.
“When CTIA first announced its bill shock guidelines and its members voluntary
commitments, I mentioned that the most important aspect of these guidelines is that CTIA’s members
agreed to allow the FCC staff to track their compliance with these measures. I applaud CTIA for its
continuing efforts to push the industry on voluntary efforts to prevent the consumers from
experiencing bill shock.”
