The Department of Justice has ordered AT&T to pay more than $2 million in fines over its mishandling of the Dobson Communications acquisition. As part of the acquisition, AT&T was required to divest some markets. During the process, AT&T failed to protect some customer data, and AT&T personnel obtained unauthorized access to the divested businesses' competitively sensitive customer information and in some situations used it to solicit and win away the divested businesses' customers. In some instances, AT&T representatives also waived some early termination fees to make it easier for divested users to switch back to AT&T. The DoJ's fine and settlement terms have yet to be finalized in court.
