Amp'd Mobile Being Fined $100k

Amp’d has been a naughty, naughty MVNO! The FCC is about to lay the smackdown on Amp’d for not protecting customer data securely enough. Turns out HP hired a bunch of private detectives to call up Amp’d impersonating customers and fished data out of the mobile provider. Amp’d hasn’t been cooperating greatly with the FCC on the investigation and has 30 days to rectify the situation or face a $100,000 fine.
