Re: Bingo
My comment was directed at the LightReading article, not your link, which lays out a very clear and compelling argument against more gov't meddling.

Re: Bingo
It's not clear by your comment that you read the linked article that I wrote.  I realize it's a little long, but this is a serious topic that is more often than not misrepresented.  I wrote it to point out those misrepresentations and to help people understand the truth behind the myths.

I don't understand the arguement.  Did they say they would stop spending all together?  If not, how do you know they wouldn't have spent even more without the threat of price regulation?

More Detail on AT&T Capex #s
One analyst has posited that the AT&T capex numbers should only be considered in terms of the money the telco spent specifically on its broadband networks. He estimates that we should shave around $1.9 billion off of AT&T's 2015 capex total and roughly $3.8 billion off of the 2016 total because of the money the operator spent on DirecTV and certain Mexican cellular properties in recent years. There may be some merit to the argument, but on the whole, I still disagree with the analysis. Investing in DirecTV is still about AT&T investing in its broadband product because the telco has said repeatedly that it believes it will be most successful where it can bundle services. AT&T has some catching up to do on the video side, hence the DirecTV capex. But that's not evidence of a chill on broadband investment.

Also ridiculous - reactions to today's court decisoin
So the DC Court of Appeals decides not to review its earlier decision supporting the Net Neutrality rules and both sides claim victory.

Pro Net Neutrality folks say, "See, the court still upholds these rules as legal.."

Pai says, "See, the court knows we're going to change this so they didn't waste time on this..."

Everybody wins, everybody loses - the perfect encapsulation of this debate.
