Dropping out of official speed testing should drop them from receiving any federal funding/subsidies.
The FCC’s mission, as stated in section one of the Communications Act:
> To make available so far as possible, to all the people of the United States, without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, or sex, **rapid, efficient**, Nationwide, and world-wide wire and radio communication services **with adequate facilities at reasonable charges**.”
What’s the point of even having an FCC if they consistently fail to do their one and only job?
So it can obfuscate the poor results, create a smoke-screen for price increases, and further the erosion of net neutrality.
Me : Hi, I’ve noticed a speed issue with my internet.
COX : Before I start I need all the information you just typed into the phone.
Me : Fine.
COX : Great. What’s your name?
Me : I just told you.
COX : We need to confirm its you.
Me : ArchDucky.
COX : Alright. What seems to be the problem?
Me : Internet speed is slow.
COX : Yes this is a known issue. Its affecting users statewide.
Me : Why didn’t you just tell me that fifteen minutes ago?
COX : I needed to confirm it was you first.
AT&T is America’s worst corporation. We pull credit reports daily. AT&T shows up so much that we ignore them as a bad credit mark. If a credit report comes back as Medical Bills or AT&T we completely overlook them as detrimental to housing, benefits, or credit. Fuck AT&T and everything they claim to stand for. They can report what ever they want but they’re treated as nothing more than a BBB score. Meaningless.
EDIT: Thank you for the Gold!
