AT&T DSL Settlement - Receive up to $2.90 per Month

Over the last few years, I have actually heard from people that their AT&T DSL was terrible, slow and they were very unhappy.

So when I saw this DSL Settlement information, I immediately thought of them. In fact, I thought of all my blog readers who may also have been or are customers of AT&T.

The lawsuit claims that AT&T was limiting the speed of DSL service below the maximum rate for plans purchased and delivering speeds at below what was promised.

There is a proposed settlement that has been reached in a class action suit and is pending.

The details are:

  • AT&T DSL customer in the U.S. AFTER March 31, 1994
  • If records show your speed below the designated rate ( they will check this, you don't need to go thru records )
  • Receive $2.90 for each month it was below
  • If speed below certain thresholds , you may be eligible to receive $2.00 a month for each such month
  • You will receive only one ( either the $2.90 or the $2.00 if you fall into a category, but not both )
  • If records do not show you fall into either of these categories but you still believe your speed was low, you may still receive a $2.00 payment
  • AT&T will also pay $3.75 million to charity as part of the settlement

Thanks for posting this. I filled out a form. I've paid for the highest speed available but didn't think it was any better than other services I use at other locations.

Thanks...I hadn't heard about this anywhere else before now, so this post was very helpful info.

BTW, your listed phone number appears to be directing to a conferencing service...I wanted to call to ask you a question.
