AT&t and Comcast Internet service providers have come under fire in recent weeks after reports surfaced that AT&ts network was slow or unresponsive.
According to the FCC, AT&tt Internet service has a “tolerated” speed of 1Mbps, but that speed does not mean it can reach all of AT&tw internet users.
As of last Friday, AT &tt Internet Service is rated “Tier 3” for performance.
That means it is a service that can reach approximately 30% of AT users, or 80% of the population in the United States, according to the commission.
In other words, AT customers who have a good internet connection can access AT&tn internet speeds.
But that speed is also not guaranteed to all AT&ton customers.
AT&t has been a net neutrality proponent and has long been critical of the FCC’s rules, and in its most recent public statement, the company noted that its internet service has “not met the high bar for internet access and performance.”
The commission has been in discussions with AT&nts CEO, John Stephens, about the company’s Internet service.
Stephens is not on the FCC team, and has reportedly told the commission that he is willing to “work to bring the internet to our customers as quickly as possible,” the Associated Press reported on Friday.
Stephens has said in the past that AT will not allow any service that could slow the speeds of AT &ts customers.
The FCC said in a statement Friday that the FCC has “worked closely with AT &tn and will continue to engage in discussions on this important issue.”
