[Commentary] We’re still picking ourselves off the floor from all the laughing we did when AT&T issued a press release announcing that it was joining the “Day of Action for preserving and advancing the open internet.” Here are some things AT&T could actually do to defend Net Neutrality and the open internet:

1) Quit trying to co-opt the terms “Net Neutrality” and “open internet.”
2) Actually support real Net Neutrality.
3) Get your CEO on the record in support of Title II.
4) Quit suing the FCC over the 2015 Open Internet Order.
5) Stop sending all your lobbyists to lobby against Net Neutrality.
6) In fact, leave Congress out of it altogether.
7) Stop lying.
8) Specifically stop lying about investment.
9) Abandon your merger with Time Warner.
10) If you won’t do that, can you at least pledge to extend John Oliver’s contract when you own HBO? That’s our guy.


at&t is guilty today for violating net neutrality per 47 U.S.C §202. The at&t is guilty today of unfair and deceptive business practices and running an illegal data transmission cartel per 15 U.S.C. §45. Zero-billing for use of DirectTV is illegal today per the FTC Act. 100's of millions of dollars in fines and three times actual damages are available per (RICO). Netflix and any other streaming video service have standing

at&t alleging to support Net Neutrality "NN" but not really supporting NN violates 42 U.S.C. 1983 and makes at&t liable for ANY loss of online freedom by ANYONE. Title II will not be repealed and Interim Chairman Pai will not get another five years to figure out how to end NN.

If Interim Chairman Pai gets another five years to represent telecom instead of citizens and you have not called your Senator; It is partly your fault.
