The originating RCN class action lawsuit was filed against RCN Telecom on behalf of customers who were allegedly charged and paid a late fee on their broadband Internet service between August 12, 2014 and April 25, 2022. Consumers alleged that RCN broadband Internet charged customers a late fee for their Internet Service in a manner inconsistent with RCN Telecom's own terms and conditions, and in addition, also violated New Jersey law, including the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act.

How Do I Qualify?

All current and former customers in the United States who received internet services from RCN Entities and who were charged and paid a late fee between August 12, 2014 and April 25, 2022 qualify for this class action settlement and payout.

What Can I Get?

Class Members who were charged and paid late fees for broadband Internet service by an RCN Telecom operating company and who file valid claims will receive their choice of either a bill credit (if you're still a customer at the time of payout) or a check or electronic payment, options which will be made available from the Settlement fund of $6,650,000. The total refund amount per qualified claimaint will depend on three contingencies:

• Whether you choose to receive a bill credit versus a check or electronic payment;
• When you were a subscriber; and
• The number of other claimants (pro-rated)

Class Members who are current customer and who choose to receive a check or electronic payment and Class Members who are former customers will receive 50% of the allocated loss of late fees paid for Internet service during the Class Period.

The allocated loss is calculated as follows: Each current or former Class Member who signed up for service after February 17, 2019 has an allocated loss of 80% of his or her late fees paid for Internet service. Each current or former Class Member who signed up for service before February 17, 2019 and who was a customer anytime on or after that date has an allocated loss of 40% of his or her late fees paid for Internet service.

Each former Class Member who signed up for service before February 17, 2019 and who was not a customer anytime on or after that date has an allocated loss of 20% of his or her late fees paid for Internet service.
