AT&T CEO Confident Trump-Appointed FCC Will Scrap Net Neutrality Regulations

AT&T's regulatory problems are melting away as the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump draws near. Aaron Pressman reporting in Fortune: "AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson says he expects a Trump-appointed FCC won't push the net neutrality issue. And a Trump-led Department of Justice antitrust review of the Time Warner deal should lead to approval, he said. Pointing to the three people that Trump has appointed to his transition team overseeing the FCC, Stephenson said the agency should be much more amenable to industry desires."
