Matt Wood, policy director at Free Press, agreed.
“AT&T’s hypocrisy knows no bounds,” Woods told Common Dreams via email. “Its phony bill of rights argument makes no sense based on the law, the policies, or the politics in play. Internet users’ rights with respect to their ISPs are already firmly established in the law. They’re guaranteed by Title II of the Communications Act, the common sense framework for broadband that AT&T and Ajit Pai have foolishly tossed aside and wasted so much time attacking.”
“AT&T’s hypocrisy knows no bounds. Its phony bill of rights argument makes no sense based on the law, the policies, or the politics in play.” —Matt Wood, Free PressAccording to Wood, AT&T is pushing a terrible— and terribly cynical—legislative fix that would serve their bottom line, not their customers or Internet users more broadly.
“AT&T’s head fake towards one-size-fits-all rules for all websites and content providers should fool no one,” he said. “As soon as AT&T wants to stop lobbying against Net Neutrality, broadband privacy, and the other rights it has worked to kill at the Trump FCC and in this Congress, maybe people will stop laughing at desperate tactics like this. For now, all we can do is point out the company’s audacity in pretending that this hyper-partisan Congress can step in to fill the void of the Net Neutrality repeal by writing a new law tailor-made for AT&T.”
As Greer put it, “If AT&T wants Internet users to have rights, they should stop lobbying against them.”
