Verizon agrees to pay $64.2 million to settle Family SharePlan overcharging claims

Verizon will pay a total of $64.2 million to its customers and to cover legal fees.</p> <!--break--> <p>The proposed settlement, which was filed last week in US District Court in New Jersey, is in response to a lawsuit filed in 2006, which claimed Verizon was charging for in-network calls on its Family SharePlan that were supposed to be free to members of that billing plan. The charges were made between 2002 and 2006.</p> <p>Under the terms of the settlement, Verizon will not admit to any wrongdoing but will pay $36.7 million in cash to its customers that were part of the Family SharePlan. It will also offer $27.5 million in free minutes to those same customers. The remaining $19.26 million will pay for the legal fees of the lawyers who represented the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.</p> <p>Do you feel more needs to be done to regulate how wireless carriers charge their customers?</p> <p>Source: Huffington Post</p> </div></div></div><div id="comment-wrapper-nid-28053"></div><img width='1' height='1' src='http://tipb.com.feedsportal.com/c/33998/f/616881/s/3fff15f4/sc/24/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/>
