AT&T Misleads FCC about 'Paid Prioritization' on the Internet


Date: August 31, 2010 Contact: Jenn Ettinger, 202-265-1490 x 35

WASHINGTON - AT&T has filed a confusing and misleading letter with the FCC in an attempt to justify charging content companies for priority access to its Internet subscribers. In the letter, AT&T conflates "paid prioritization" - the anti-consumer practice of speeding up and slowing down Internet traffic according to which service provider pays more - with far more accepted business network management practices. Free Press and other Net Neutrality proponents oppose discriminatory "paid prioritization," not these other arrangements.
