Verizon and Sprint will pay $158 million to settle FCC billing complaint charges

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p class="intro">Verizon Wireless and Sprint will pay a combined total of $158 million to settle billing complain charges filed by the Federal Communications Commission.</p> <p><a href='http://www.imore.com/verizon-and-sprint-will-pay-158-million-settle-fcc-billing-complaint-charges' title="Verizon and Sprint will pay $158 million to settle FCC billing complaint charges"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large_wm_brw/public/field/image/2014/10/Verizon-Store-01_0.jpg?itok=TpN7bIa5' />[/url]</p> <p>Under the terms of the settlement, Verizon will pay $90 million, while Sprint will have to spend $68 million, for a total of $158 million. At least $120 million of the total amount will go to reimbursing consumers hit with the charges.</p> <!--break--> <p>The FCC said that both companies billed their customers for "unauthorized third-party premium text messaging services", which has become known under the term "cramming." The government agency previously settled a similar case with T-Mobile in 2014, for the price of $90 million. AT&amp;T also agreed to pay $105 million to the FCC to settle its own "cramming" charges in 2014.</p> <p>Source: FCC</p> </div></div></div><img width='1' height='1' src='' border='0'/><br clear='all'/>
