AT&T Offering a Measly Five Bucks After Massive Outage That Rendered Their Phones Useless

Yeah, this doesn’t sound like it’s going to go over well for AT&T. AT&T says its recent widespread outage that left many users unable to contact family members, better yet do anything at all using the carrier’s services, is worth $5. In a new statement, shared Sunday, the company said it was “reaching out to potentially impacted customers” and “proactively applying a credit to their accounts.” Per the Associated Press, that credit will be in the amount of $5. Seemingly, this means that the company believes someone potentially being unable to get in touch with a loved one in an emergency, or for any reason, is financially comparable to, say, a meal at Taco Bell.
