The number of people signing up to the Vodafone class action lawsuit lead by law firm Piper Alderman is still climbing and is slated to reach 20,000 in the next week.
As of yesterday, the firm said that around 19,400 people had registered interest in the lawsuit, which is taking Vodafone to task for the quality of its 3G services.
"At the current rate of registrations, we would expect to reach 20,000 within the next week or so," Piper Alderman partner Sasha Ivantsoff said.
Despite the large number of registrations, the firm is still willing to keep taking people on, with claimants able to join the class action lawsuit at any time up to the filing of proceedings in court.
The firm had been carrying out a survey to gather information from registrants and to decide if it would include Vodafone's recent security breach, which resulted in the sacking of Vodafone staff, in the case. That survey is ongoing, according to Ivantsoff.
