2020: THE IRREGULATORS BIG WIN TO FREE THE STATES

Time for Phase II; Time for New Legal & State Actions: Read More….

MARCH 16th, 2020: RELEASE:  IRREGULATORS BIG WIN: We Freed the States to Get the Money Back from AT&T, Verizon & CenturyLink. 

The New Threat: Disaster Capitalism The plans being announced by the FCC, Congress, as well as city and state governments, have been using this emergency to bundle financial giveaways for wireless to companies that already failed to deliver. Worse, it is now clear that through the manipulation of the accounting, AT&T and Verizon created the Digital Divide and this glaring example of greed vs the public interest must be confronted- now.

On April 15th, 2019, the IRREGULATORS filed to stop an FCC decision that tries to bury one of the largest accounting scandals in American history. It is directly tied to AT&T, Verizon and CenturyLink’s state-based utilities. On March 13th, 2020: 
  • We Got the Decision We Wanted; The States are now independent and we are working to bring new municipality and state actions over the next 2 months.
  • IRREGULATORS Treasure Map: Billions for broadband in your state and refunds on your communications bills.

  • The Cities and States can now go after hundreds of millions/billions of dollars per state from the companies that control America’s critical public wired state-based telecommunications utilities–AT&T, Verizon and Centurylink and the other phone, cable, ISPs, and broadband providers.

  • These funds can now be freed to solve the Digital Divide, lower prices and bring in competition.

  • Stop the Wireline-Wireless Cross Subsidies. The wireless networks require fiber optic wires to their cell sites and over the last decade they have been able to divert billions of dollars from the state’s wireline construction budgets and charge the wired networks and phone customers for wireless. 

  • Separate the Wireline Utility from the Wireless & Other Subsidiaries. As a country we must examine how AT&T and Verizon have been able to have the state wired utility act as a cash machine at the detriment of the States and Cities.
