Consumer Watchdog of Santa Monica on Thursday will file a complaint against the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) accusing the entity and cell phone carriers of “misleading the public” about the speed of so-called 4G wireless service.

“We want the FCC to order the cell phone companies to disclose the actual true speeds on their marketing and websites and retail stories so people can understand and compare,” said Harvey Rosenfield, the attorney who filed the complaint. They say their service is “three times faster, 10 times faster, but faster than what?” he asks.
