It isn’t often a big company like AT& T or Verizon step up and do the right thing but they are and we wanted you to know.
In a statement, AT&T announced they will be automatically issuing credits and waiving additional fees to give unlimited data, talk and texts to AT&T wireless customers and unlimited talk and texts to AT&T PREPAID customers. These credits are effective Sept. 8 across all of Florida and Sept. 12 in impacted Georgia counties and will continue through Sept. 17 for all impacted customers (based on billing zip code). They are also extending payment dates for impacted AT&T PREPAID customers with voice and text service through Sept. 17.
“This applies to AT&T wireless customers with billing zip codes and AT&T PREPAID customers with billing phone numbers in all of Florida and in nearly 25 Georgia counties – Appling, Atkinson, Bacon, Brantley, Bryan, Bulloch, Camden, Candler, Charlton, Chatham, Clinch, Coffee, Effingham, Evans, Glynn, Jeff Davis, Liberty, Long, McIntosh, Pierce, Tattnall, Toombs, Ware and Wayne.” 1
While customers may still receive data alert notifications during those dates, billing will reflect the correct data charges.
