Statement of FCC Chairman William E. Kennard
Regarding AT&T Rate Increase

AT&T promised to pass on savings to all consumers. Their new rate plan does not do that. It is in our order and I am going to enforce it.

AT&T promised to tell their consumers which plan would be most cost effective for them. This was not done. I will also hold AT&T to this commitment.
