Misrepresentations of Services Provided
Plaintiff David Ehrman has been paying a premium for faster home Internet connections to Cox Communications, Inc. “in reliance on [Cox’s] advertisements and related statements concerning the speed, functionality, and reliability” of their services. However, the complaint for this class action alleges that the advertised speeds of Cox’s connections are rarely if ever achieved by subscribers. The complaint claims Cox has committed common law fraud and violated California laws, such as its False Advertising Law and Consumer Legal Remedies Act.
