Chanel’s New Wallet On Chain Bag is a Spin on the Classic Flap

Chanel-Wallet-on-Chain-Bag

We talk about Chanel‘s seasonal bags at length, but some of the brand’s most-loved accessories fly under the radar in the “small leather goods” category. That includes the Chanel Wallet On Chain, which is precisely what it sounds like–a large wallet with the brand’s popular leather-woven shoulder strap, which can be carried as a small purse if the wearer is willing to sacrifice the bulky contents of her regular bag. For the brand’s Metiers d’Art 2016 collection, the little bag got a notable makeover.

The WOC, as it’s know among Chanel aficionados, has always been a popular entry-level buy for new customers looking to get their feet wet without the full price commitment of a regular Chanel flap bag. Starting at $2,000 for the two styles you see below, the bag is certainly not cheap, but it does soften the blow a little bit when compared to a Classic Flap, which can cost up to $6,000 in either of Chanel’s two standard leathers.

There’s no indication that the regular WOC, which features a straight-across flap and snap closure, is going anywhere; instead, this appears to be an addition to the line, which also features WOCs modeled after the Boy and Reissue bags. For customers looking to buy their first Chanel piece, the close resemblance to a Classic Flap, with its turnlock closure and curved front, will surely be appreciated.

These bags are in stores now.

AT&T Fined $100 Million by FCC for Unlimited Data Throttling Practices

ATT LogoThe United States Federal Communications Commission today announced plans to fine AT&T $100 million for misleading customers about its unlimited mobile data plans. Following an investigation, the FCC is accusing AT&T of severely slowing down the data speeds of customers with unlimited data plans and failing to adequately warn them about the slower data speeds.

In 2011, AT&T implemented a “Maximum Bit Rate” policy and capped the maximum data speeds for unlimited customers after they used a set amount of data within a billing cycle. The capped speeds were much slower than the normal network speeds AT&T advertised and significantly impaired the ability of AT&T customers to access the Internet or use data applications for the remainder of the billing cycle.

The FCC says AT&T violated the 2010 Open Internet Transparency Rule by falsely calling its plans “unlimited” and by not informing customers of the maximum speed they would receive under AT&T’s Maximum Bit Rate policy. Millions of customers suffered slow data speeds, with some seeing speed reductions for 12 days per month on average.

On the decision, FCC chairman Tom Wheeler had this to say: “Customers deserve to get what they pay for. Broadband providers must be upfront and transparent about the services they provide. The FCC will not stand idly by while consumers are deceived by misleading marketing materials and insufficient disclosure.”

AT&T ceased offering unlimited data plans years ago, but it continues to have customers with grandfathered unlimited data plans. AT&T previously throttled all of those customers after they exceeded 5GB of LTE data, but in May, AT&T implemented a policy change that sees customers being throttled only when connected to a cell tower experiencing network congestion.

Along with facing a $100 million fine levied by the FCC, AT&T is also involved in an ongoing lawsuit with the Federal Trade Commission over the same issue.
