"FCC seals $86B AT&T-BellSouth merger

....

The No. 1 telecommunications company's commitments included a promise to maintain net neutrality for at least 30 months..."

============================================

After which (one can safely assume), "net neutrality" goes right out the window unless we all get busy and go here: https://secure.aclu....Advocacy?id=535 to make sure that S. 2917, the Internet Freedom Preservation Act, gets passed.

Given AT&T's penchant for simply handing over massive quantities of personal data to the government whenever asked - and looking at that shiny new "privacy policy" of theirs ( http://www.sfgate.co...BUG9VJHB9C1.DTL ) - I simply see nothing good coming of this merger, privacy-wise. Pete

*ACLU link is dead - use this one instead: http://action.freepr...aign/savethenet and copy/paste the following comment into the field given: "I urge you to IMMEDIATELY press for passage of S. 2917, the Internet Freedom Preservation Act sponsored by by Senators Olympia Snowe and Byron Dorgan."
