AT&T to Pay You Money Back For Your Slow DSL

If you've been an AT&T DSL subscriber after March 31, 1994, you may be entitled to some money from AT&T thanks to a class action settlement.

According to the IDG news service, current and past customers of AT&T DSL who had their DSL speeds configured by AT&T at a lower speed than promised in the plan is eligible for $2.90 per month while affected.

Those who had their DSL speeds configured by AT&T correctly but still experienced slower than expected speeds are eligible for a $2 per month settlement.

Finally, those who said that they experienced slower speeds but AT&T believes received the service they paid for will be eligible for a single $2 payment.

If that applies to you, then hit up this website here to file your claim before June 1, 2010.

In addition to the settlement sums, AT&T will make a $3.75 million charitable contribution on top of paying $11 million in legal fees.

    They should be paying all their wireless customers back for their horrendous network.

    So basically, AT&T is paying $2 to any customer willing to lie about the quality of their service, or too ignorant to realize that having nine or ten torrents running while streaming HD porn is going to slow down your internet.

    Huh, 3.75 minllion charitable to who... are they trying to say "We are sorry to screw our customers but here is 3.75 million to charity because we care". This doesn't make sence to me at all.

    Just because you like to run 10 HD pr0n torrents download everyday, that doesn't mean everyone else is doing the same. So don't easily call others as ignorant.

    Crap. Now my ATT service is going to go up to pay for another ridiculous lawsuit.

    Att did a mediocre job in the past and now competitiors have come up in the marketplace as a result.

    How fast should I *really* be able to DL with a 768k connection? The highest I've seen is about 300 on steam. Am I getting ripped off? Should I ask for money?
