"We are seeing clear evidence across the country of both consumer and enterprise devices having network traffic altered through these tracking beacon headers.

Most importantly, when present, AT&T and Verizon tracking beacons persist even after changing locations or IP addresses, and do so in spite of any browser privacy settings."

In response to many questions about the best defense you can take (short of changing providers), my advice is to use HTTPS wherever possible, or (better) use a VPN service, or possibly a proxy service. Unfortunately, no browser plug-in is going to be 100% effective unless you strictly visit HTTPS sites or trust the plug-in proxy provider. In the case of HTTPS, a VPN or proxy, the HTTP network headers cannot be modified/injected by your cellular ISP."
