AT&T’s slow 1.5Mbps Internet in poor neighborhoods sparks complaint to FCC

The formal complaint filed [yesterday] with the Federal Communications Commission says that AT&T is violating the Communications Act’s prohibition against unjust and unreasonable discrimination. That ban is part of Title II, which is best known as the authority used by the FCC to impose net neutrality rules. But as we’ve explained before, Title II also contains important consumer protections that go beyond net neutrality, such as a ban on discrimination in rates, practices, and offerings of services. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica http://ift.tt/2g99tXo
