AT&T Tells Every Employee To Complain To The FCC About Net Neutrality

Remember the Comcastard stacked FCC hearing on BitTorrent blocking? AT&T thinks that's a good strategy, since AT&T's main lobbyist sent a letter to all 300,000 employees "encouraging" them and their families to protest the FCC's net neutrality rules. Yeesh.

Specifically, he tells employees how to register to post comments on the FCC's net neutrality site and lays out talking points for them to use, like "competition in the wireless industry is strong" and, hmmmmm, "the rules should apply to more than just network operators and should also include Web content companies like search engines." They're really pulling out all the stops, aren't they? Which should show you how truly scared they are of the FCC's proposed net neutrality rules.

If you want to comment in favour of net neutrality (or, um, not I suppose) to counter the lobbyist scum quotiet, you can direct your comments here until Thursday. In the meantime, the FCC's busy tweaking the proposal, in particular the sections about network management—which is obviously what the carriers are most concerned about. [Washington Post]
