Advocates Urge FCC To Block AT&T’s Merger With DirecTV

Advocacy group Public Knowledge is warning the Federal Communications Commission that AT&T’s proposed $49 billion merger with DirecTV would give the company a big incentive to block competition from
online video providers. The organization is calling on the FCC to block the merger. The group adds that if the deal isn’t nixed, the FCC should at least impose a host of conditions on AT&T —
including that it follow open Internet principles.
