AT&T continues to press for wireless net neutrality exemption

AT&T (NYSE:T) wants to remind the wireless community--again--that when it comes to net neutrality, wireless is different. Following up on a blog post Friday, Joan Marsh, AT&T's vice president of federal regulatory, once again took to the company's public policy blog to press the case that wireless networks should not be covered by net neutrality regulations. Marsh acknowledged that she received both negative and positive feedback to her original post, but said that network providers, application developers, device makers and consumers "have much to work out and burdensome neutrality regulations that refuse to recognize the capacity/demand struggle on wireless networks won't help. In fact they could hurt. A lot." Google, which unveiled a public policy proposal with Verizon (NYSE:VZ) on net neutrality, also issued a second post explaining and amplifying its message. Article
