Nobody should be left behind; nobody should lose voice service; and every American, including people of color, should experience the opportunities that are possible in the all-IP world we are entering now.
I just made a rather disturbing finding. AT&T's U-verse service -- its broadband, internet and TV service -- is a copper-to-the-home service. More importantly, it is a fiber-to-the-press-release.
It appears that you can fool most of the people most of the time. AT&T has proven that if you spend a boatload of money and repeat the same deceptive statements over and over, the public will believe anything you want them to.
