AT&T agrees to net neutrality — and tells us they’ll ignore it

One big case that can affect Net Neutrality is the AT&T proposed buyout of BellSouth. There is news that AT&T has made big concessions to network neutrality, but early reports from those who’ve looked at their memo carefully show that AT&T is not making any concessions at all. According to TechDirt, “AT&T promises not to violate network neutrality on a network they never intended to use that way, and carves out permission to use it on their new network, where they had planned all along to set up additional tollbooths.”
