Welcome to the informational website for the RCN TCPA Settlement.

UPDATE (2/24/17): On February 22, 2017, the Court held a public Final Fairness Hearing in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois, Chancery Division. Following this hearing, the Court entered an order for final approval of the Settlement. The Court also approved Class Counsel’s request for attorneys’ fees and expenses. Please continue to visit this Settlement website for updates.

If you received a call from RCN Telecom Services, LLC, you may be entitled to a payment from a class action settlement.

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that RCN Telecom Services, LLC (“RCN”) violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227, by using an automatic telephone dialing system to make calls to cellphones without the consent of the recipient and making prerecorded calls or marketing calls to landlines where the recipient is listed on the national do not call list and received more than one such call in a 12 month period.

Settlement Class Members who submit Valid Claims will be entitled to a share of the Settlement Fund.
