If you are a current or former AT&T and/or SBC Express DSL customer in the states of Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Texas you will want to read more about the AT&T Express DSL Speed Class Action Lawsuit styled Schmidt v. AT&T and SBC Internet Services, Inc at ExpressDSLSpeedSettlement.com. The lawsuit claims that AT&T failed to provide DSL service at the speeds promised in the contract. Few things in life are more annoying than a slow Internet connection. The lawsuit settlement will provide $8 to each eligible class member for each month their DSL service was slower than promised. The lawsuit goes on to claim that AT&T capped customers Internet speeds below 1.5 Mbps, including 384 kbps and 768 kbps… this is very slow for those of you not familiar with Mbps and kbps. AT&T claims no wrong doing of any sort but has agreed to terms. Besides the $8 settlement payout AT&T has agreed to monitor speeds for the next three-years to make sure the minimum DSL speeds are corresponding to the customer’s plan.
