The FCC said it could have fined AT&T much more, up to $16,000 per violation for millions of violations. But it chose $100 million to avoid "an astronomical figure" while making the fine big enough to deter future violations.
"Maybe next time the FCC will fine much much more because apparently it hasn't done much to deter AT&T so far."
