'Internet Freedom'? AT&T's Verbal Jujitsu to Close Down Telecommunications in America | Huff Post Blog

'Internet Freedom'? AT&T's Verbal Jujitsu to Close Down Telecommunications in America | Huff Post Blog | Jujitsu Lawrenceville | Scoop.it

You got to hand it to AT&T. The phone company either wrote the Republican's 'Internet Freedom' platform or the Republicans just lifted the hype. Either way, AT&T has created this verbal jujitsu and has been able to confuse America to the point that night is day, opaque is transparent or, in this case, the term "Internet freedom" is really about making people believe it's about "freedom" when it is really about the destruction of America's entire telecommunications ecosystem.

 

I'll come back to how the Republican platform is using this 'Internet freedom' jujitsu in a moment.

 

AT&T has reached new heights of hubris with the letter they submitted to the FCC on August 30, 2012. AT&T's plan is to remove all regulations and obligations and they are doing this with a trick; the Internet is an 'information service' which does not have the obligations of a 'telecommunications' service -- and they are proposing to make everything regulated as the Internet. This means that almost all of the remaining wires, networks or even the obligation to offer services over those wires and networks are all removed -- as much of this infrastructure is classified as "telecommunications". The Public Switched Telephone Networks, the utility, would suddenly be reclassified as an information service. Sayonara any telco rules, regulations and oh yes, your rights. Your service breaks... tough. Prices go up and there's no direct competition -- too bad. Networks weren't upgraded -- so what. Net Neutrality? Neutered.

 

As we've discussed, AT&T and Verizon, working with the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), have been able to use this ploy to remove regulations in multiple states -- claiming that VOIP, (also known as 'digital voice') -- which uses Internet protocols (IP) shouldn't be regulated. Thus, when AT&T makes their entire network Internet-friendly, voila -- regulations like 'carrier of last resort' -- the requirement to give a customer phone service in your territory (AT&T is the major incumbent phone company in 22 states) -- or any examination of the price of service -- are gone.
