AT&T Pausing Fiber Investment Until Net Neutrality Rules Are Decided

You know AT&T customers are seriously going to appreciate this little stunt. Waiting on fiber? Don't blame us, it's the FCC's fault. roll eyes (sarcastic)

AT&T Inc will stop investing in new high-speed Internet connections in 100 U.S. cities until regulators decide whether to enact tough "net neutrality" rules proposed by President Obama, Chief Executive Officer Randall Stephenson said on Wednesday.
