A vibrant, open internet is critical for ensuring freedom of expression in the United States and around the world; it is also a cornerstone of our 21st Century global economy. Government policies must be as smart and nimble as the devices and networks on which we rely, and must apply equally to all players in the internet ecosystem. And they must foster the massive network investments necessary to fuel the continued growth of the internet, including the billions of connected sensors of the Internet of Things (IoT) and the ever-increasing volume of streaming video traffic. AT&T has long been committed to preserving an open internet, which is why we do not favor certain websites or internet applications by blocking, throttling, or modifying particular protocols on our broadband internet access service.
