Recently, a user of iPhone, Matt Spaccarelli, won a case against AT&T Inc. for slowing down the unlimited data plan. The court ordered the firm to pay $850 as compensation to Matt Spaccarelli. AT&T Inc., obliging by the court, has sent a check of $850 to Matt Spaccarelli.
Verdict over the case was announced last Friday. Soon after the verdict, AT&T said that it would be appeal the decision and later it also sent a letter to Matt Spaccarelli asking him for settling down the case.
But it was too late, as Matt Spaccarelli was not happy to go with the settlement. It has been informed that the firm wanted him to sign an agreement promising that he will not make public the documents which helped him winning the case.
As Matt Spaccarelli was reluctant of settlement, the firm had no other choice besides sending a check of $850. The company’s Spokesman, John Britton, said, “I can confirm we have settled it and we have paid it”.
Meanwhile, AT&T has recently said that it is planning to change the data plan and would be charging more to the users who are using much data through the unlimited data plan. Changes in the plan would be made public soon.
