AT&T to pause fiber spending on net neutrality uncertaintyWASHINGTON (Reuters) - AT&T Inc (T.N) on Wednesday raised pressure on the U.S. telecommunications regulator’s work on new “net neutrality rules, saying it would stop investing in high-speed Internet connections in 100 cities until the Web rules were settled.

AT&T has been spending heavily on acquisitions and the statement came only days after it cut its capital spending estimate for 2015. The industry and Republican lawmakers have protested Obama’s proposal, saying stricter I

nternet traffic regulations would stifle growth and investment. “We can’

t go out and invest that kind of money deploying fiber to 100 cities not knowing under what rules those investments will be governed, Stephenson said at an analyst conference.

At the same conference on Wednesday, Verizon Communications Inc (VZ.N) CFO Fran Shammo struck a more restrained tone. She said the FCC could restrict “paid prioritization deals, where content companies pay for faster downloads of some websites or applications, without pursuing utility-style regulations. “I think the independent agency of the FCC will make the right decision, Shammo added.
