Case Summary:

You may be eligible if you live in California, bought an unlimited data plan from AT&T Mobility, LLC, and on or before March 31, 2021, exceeded AT&T’s data usage threshold for any user on your account for one or more billing cycles, so that the user would have qualified for data use slowing or deprioritization by AT&T.
