AT&T refuses to offer low-income discounts for sub-3Mbps Internet – Ars Technica


When AT&T purchased DirecTV, merger conditions imposed by the Federal Communications Commission required the ISP to offer Internet service for either $5 or $10 a month to people with low incomes.

But AT&T has found a way around this requirement in areas where the company has failed to upgrade its network to anything remotely resembling modern Internet service. If you live in a place where AT&T’s maximum download speeds are less than a paltry 3Mbps, you can’t get the discount from the new “Access from AT&T” program.
