Trade groups go to war with New York over low-income broadband law
Trade groups representing AT&T, Verizon and other telecom companies are opening fire on a new law requiring them to provide discounted internet service to low-income households in New York. USTelecom, CTIA, the New York State Telecommunications Association, and others representing smaller companies filed a lawsuit against New York's new law requiring providers in the state to offer broadband service for $15 a month to low-income households. The trade groups say the state doesn't have the authority to mandate broadband prices, and warn it could undermine companies' ability to invest and upgrade their networks.
