AT&T (T) - Get Report has been accused of slowing Internet speeds in lower-income neighborhoods by failing to offer faster Internet options that are readily available to those in wealthier areas, according to The Hill.
The complaint, filed with the FCC, is on behalf of three women who claim they experience slowed Internet speeds, despite paying for premium service.
"We do not redline," Joan Marsh, AT&T's chief regulatory and external affairs officer, told The Hill. "Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is unparalleled. Our investment decisions are based on the cost of deployment and demand for our services and are of course fully compliant with the requirements of the Communications Act."
