Recently AT&T made a request to the Louisiana Public Utility Service Commission, to stop the delivery of residential white pages to every home. Could this be about *insert shocked face* a larger profit margin for AT&T?
amalia deloney, Media Policy Field Director stated, “Since AT&T first announced its intent to takeover T-Mobile, CMJ has continuously raised concerns about what role a duopoly would mean for those who rely on access to mobile broadband to find employment, access healthcare, advance their education and organize for social and economic justice.”
For many of us, the days before search engines, social networking and constant wireless access to information and entertainment seem like a lifetime ago. But for those young adults about to start their first year of college, that is literally the case.
As you’ve no doubt heard, AT&T is trying to swallow T-Mobile to the tune of $39 billion dollars and the results would be nothing short of disastrous—especially for Minnesotans of color and low-income communities throughout the state. In order to make sure this deal doesn’t happen, my organization and hundreds of others have worked tirelessly to fight this takeover as it goes through the lengthy legal review process in Washington.
The Center for Media Justice filed a
