AT&T Exploits Massive Loophole to Deny Budget Internet to Some Low-Income Customers

The [National Digital Inclusion Alliance] figured out that AT&T was able to deny SNAP beneficiaries discounted internet service in areas where the fastest speed available was less than 3 Mbps. And while you might think such slow internet is a rarity in rural areas, it actually accounts for around 21% of blocks in Cleveland and Detroit. The blocks with internet service below 3 Mbps constitute some of the cities’ poorest areas. – Eve Peyser, Gizmodo
