Telecom Companies Complain About Broadband Rules

In a paean to deregulation, a group of top telecommunication companies and trade associations sent a letter to the White House, complaining that the Federal Communications Commission isn't doing enough to reduce federal rules. Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner Cable and Verizon joined organizations like CTIA and Broadband for America in arguing that the FCC, which regulates all of them, is not sufficiently following President Obama's order to review, and if necessary, cut regulations.
