This is an ongoing investigation of AT&T's billing practices.
The pending class action against AT&T claims that from at least March, 1998 until January, 2003, AT&T charged its cell phone subscribers a "universal connectivity charge". AT&T increased the universal connectivity charge without notice. The universal connectivity charge was not a tax or government imposed fee, but rather a fee AT&T created to help AT&T defray the cost of ordinary business expenses. The universal connectivity fee was not disclosed at the time a consumer subscribed to the AT&T service.
