Interesting to note that AT&T has finally offered the customers to settle the realm they are having with the company but wait it is meant only for those who has successfully took them to court over allegations of slowing his data speeds.

Matthew Spaccarelli in February won a small claims in a court against the US based carrier for throttling his data speeds once he used between 1.5GB and 2GB a month, despite having an “unlimited” plan – over on which AT&T has send a letter to Spaccarelli threatened him the company will cut off his service for him if he did not sit down to discuss the settlement.

In an interview with CNET, he said: “This isn’t really about the $850. I guess they could offer me more money. But I don’t really care about that. I just want to get the service that I’ve been paying for and that service is supposed to include unlimited data.”

Spaccarelli won $850 in court, and expressed “confusion” over the fact that why the company wanted to settle without appealing. The controversy comes two weeks after AT&T upped the throttling threshold to 3GB on its unlimited data plan.
