A new lawsuit alleges that AT&T is overcharging
After hearing a lot of complaints, lawyers say they spent $80,000 testing several devices using different carriers over a period of months, including four iPhones and iPads. They say they found that AT&T systematically overstated the amount of data use on virtually every transaction. That can add up to overcharges for millions of consumers.
Attorney Barry Davis likens this situation to a rigged gas pump. An independent computer firm was hired to precisely measure data use. They found AT&T was systematically overcharging for data by 7% to 14% for every single transaction.
