Alabama, Other States Reach Deal With AOL
(2007-07-11)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Alabama is among 47 states to join a settlement with A-O-L, one of the nation's largest Internet service providers.

Attorney General Troy King, in a statement Wednesday, said A-O-L has agreed to make it easier for remaining customers to leave. It is part of a three (m) million-dollar settlement.

The case followed complaints from A-O-L customers who said when they tried to close accounts, they were thwarted or were still billed for services that they thought had been canceled.

The outcry triggered a multistate investigation that would have culminated in a lawsuit if A-O-L hadn't agreed to ante up and to change its ways.

A-O-L ended March with a reported 12 (m) million U-S subscribers, down from 21 (m) million less than two years ago.
