Comcast settles overcharging suit for $50MN
| 30 October 2014
Comcast has agreed to a $50 million settlement to more than 800,000 subscribers in a lawsuit that claimed it was overcharging cable TV subscribers in the US.
Comcast will pay $16.67 million in cash to current and former subscribers in Philadelphia and four nearby countries. It will also offer existing subscribers as much as $33.33 million in services via a $15 bill credit or free Internet upgrades, or movies worth up to $43.90.
According to Reuters, Comcast denied wrongdoing in agreeing to settle.
The cable MSO has been beefing up its customer service lately, recently opening a new call centre. inShare1
