Man Downloads ‘Wall-E' on 3G Card in Mexico, Peril Ensues

Typically, downloading a movie online is far cheaper than heading to the movie theater. This wasn’t the case, however, for a man named Alberto, who was whacked with a $62,000 bill after he downloaded ‘Wall-E’ to his computer with a 3G broadband card while in Mexico.

Naturally, Alberto argued the fairness of the bill’s exorbitant sum, and the carrier agreed to knock his bill down to the actual bandwidth costs imposed on the carrier—a sum that still equaled $17,000.
