Address to submit a claim form (REQUIRED):
Details: The AT&T DSL settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled Schmidt v. AT&T and SBC Internet Services, Inc., alleging that AT&T failed to deliver DSL service to its customers at the speeds promised. Specifically, the class action lawsuit alleges that AT&T breached its contract with and defrauded some of its customers by limiting the maximum data speed that some of its customers could obtain to a rate below the maximum rate for the plan the customer purchased. The class action lawsuit also alleged that AT&T breached its contracts with and defrauded some of its customers by delivering speeds lower than the minimum promised under the customer’s plan, or otherwise disappointed its customers’ expectations regarding the speed of the DSL Service.
AT&T denies the allegations but has agreed to a class action lawsuit settlement to avoid ongoing litigation.
