Net neutrality: A lobbying bonanza

Major Internet service providers AT&T, Comcast and Verizon are among the biggest opponents of Wheeler’s plan, and they have been fighting it intensely. They spent a combined $44.2 million to lobby Washington on a host of issues last year, with net neutrality among their top agenda items, according to company disclosures. Executives like AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts and Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam have personally met with Wheeler to press their views.
