18:07 EDTCMCSA, TCongressional GOP unveil net neutrality law to bypass FCC, LA Times reports
Representatives Fred Upton of Michigan and John Thune of South Dakota endorsed a congressional bill that would protect net-neutrality by banning internet service providers from charging companies extra to load their sites, and prohibit broadband companies from blocking legitimate websites, or slowing speeds for customers, superseding the FCC's authority to regulate the internet, according to the LA Times. Major internet companies such as AT&T (T) , Comcast (CMCSA), and Verizon Communications (VZ) have opposed a recent recommendation by FCC Chairman Thomas Wheeler to treat internet service similar to a utility.

17:25 EDTTAT&T reports Q4 $10B charge related to pension benefits and network assets
For the quarter ended December 31, AT&T expects to record a noncash, pre-tax loss of approximately $7.9B related to actuarial gains and losses on pension and postemployment benefit plans. At December 31, the company decreased its assumed discount rates used to measure the pension obligation to 4.3% and to 4.2% for the company's postretirement obligation. These reductions resulted in an actuarial loss of approximately $7.9B. Also contributing to the amount were losses due to updated mortality assumptions offset by asset gains in excess of its assumed rate of return as well as demographic changes and other assumptions. Actuarial gains and losses are managed on a total company basis and are, accordingly, reflected only in consolidated results. Therefore, this loss will not affect segment operating results or margins. The company's Q4 operating results will also include a $2.1B noncash charge for the abandonment in place of certain network assets. During Q4, the company performed an analysis of its network assets and determined that specific copper assets will not be necessary to support future network activity, due to declining customer demand for AT&T's legacy voice and data products and the migration of its networks to next generation technology. This decision by management will not be considered in the company's assessment of segment performance and therefore, this charge will be reflected only in consolidated results and will not affect segment operating results or margins.
