It goes back to the monopoly days

by T Bone    Sep 25, 2012, 2:51 PM

When at&t was a (government approved and established) monopoly the FCC and organizations like Consumer Reports et al really hated at&t, perhaps for good reason as far as I know, but they've never really gotten past their old bitterness and are still hammering at&t less for what is happening today and more for what happened 30 and more years ago.....basically they are just used to thinking of at&t as the devil incarnate and they are determined to stick to that view regardless of what the facts might actually be...

And I do feel the need to point out, which most people don't bother to, that the old at&t monopoly was a government monopoly, the government GRANTED at&t monopoly status, and established at&t as a monopoly....at&t didn't achieve that status by ruthlessly forcing out competitors or engaging in unethical practices or anything like that, the government made it a monopoly on purpose...
