- Critics of AT&T's new sponsored data program want the FCC to investigate their claims that it is a violation of net neutrality rules.
- Public interest groups like Free Press and Public Knowledge claim the program, which allows mobile users to use data for free when accessing sponsors content, is anticompetitive because smaller publishers can't afford to subsidize data use.
- Representatives of the FCC were unwilling to comment on the situation at CES this week and planned to "wait and see" how the program turns out.
Most likely, the FCC members didn't want to comment on the AT&T program because they haven't had a chance to fully examine the program. Making any kind of statement uninformed would be a horrible idea. That being said, it will be interesting to see what the FCC does decide on AT&T's controversial data sponsor program once they have had time to investigate.
