    confusing!

    Would you please paraphrase the following more esaily? And what does "round up" mean there? "Bring together something in one place"? "Collect money"?

    * Verizon settling lawsuits for milions of dollars for overcharging and rounding up data charges.

    Thank you.

    Verizon (a telephone company) is agreeing to pay millions of dollars for lawsuits (legal actions brought against the company) for asking for more than they should have (overcharging) and for asking for extra payment in cases when they added time (to round up is to add to a number so as to arrive at the next integer - .75 rounded up is 1.00) to a call.
