What's This Settlement About?
A $6,600,000 Class Action has been Settled with telecom RCA. The originating 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.
