Why This Is Important
The United States Telephone Association (USTA), the phone companies trade association, has petitioned the FCC (WC Docket No. 12-61) to essentially remove all requirements to supply information about AT&T, Verizon and the other phone companies business activities. This is known as forbearance, where the FCC has the authority enforce the law but chooses not to do so.
This is the latest effort in an ongoing campaign to allow AT&T and Verizon to hide what they are doing by no longer disclosing basic financial information between and among the companies subsidiaries.
This means that your right to known will be limited. You wont know what the telcos are doing behind your back. Worse, this stops advocates or the government from knowing what these companies are doing.
We need more data, not less. We need your help.
