The following statement may be attributed to Bob Quinn, AT&T Chief Privacy Officer and Senior Vice President of Federal Regulatory:

“Roaming agreements for both voice and data are in place throughout the country, and were reached through normal commercial negotiations.  The evidence presented in this proceeding demonstrated conclusively that proponents of a roaming mandate were seeking government intervention, not to obtain agreements – which are plentiful – but rather to regulate rates downward.  While we will thoroughly review today’s order, we continue to believe that a data roaming mandate is unwarranted and will discourage investment and build out of broadband facilities for both those seeking regulated roaming rates and those forced to wholesale facilities at those rates.”
