Thousands of Comcast/Xfinity customers in Minnesota will receive refunds and debt relief to settle a lawsuit alleging it overcharged customers for cable.

Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison said Wednesday that 15,600 Minnesotans will receive refunds and an additional 16,000 will get debt relief.

Ellison said the refunds and debt relief are worth millions of dollars.

The settlement also requires Comcast to change its advertising practices to disclose the full amount customers will be charged for service.

A Comcast spokeswoman says the settlement reflects the company's ongoing efforts to improve the customer experience.
