In light of news reports concerning the proposed AT&T (T) and DirecTV (DTV) transaction, FCC chairman Tom Wheeler issued the following statement: "An order recommending that the AT&T-DirecTV transaction be approved with conditions has circulated to the commissioners... If the conditions are approved by my colleagues, 12.5M customer locations will have access to a competitive high-speed fiber connection. This additional build-out is about 10 times the size of AT&Tís current fiber-to-the-premise deployment... and more than triples the number of metropolitan areas AT&T has announced plans to serve. In addition, the conditions will build on the 'Open Internet Order' already in effect... First, in order to prevent discrimination against online video competition, AT&T will not be permitted to exclude affiliated video services and content from data caps on its fixed broadband connections. Second, in order to bring greater transparency to interconnection practices, the company will be required to submit all completed interconnection agreements to the Commission, along with regular reports on network performance... We will require an independent officer to help ensure compliance with these and other proposed conditions." Reference Link
