Senators raise net neutrality concerns over AT&T's HBO Max data deal - Business Insider

  • Three Democratic senators are raising net neutrality concerns over AT&T's decision to strike a data deal with HBO Max, the newly launched streaming service owned by AT&T.
  • AT&T's maneuver, first reported by The Verge, directs HBO Max to buy "sponsored data" from AT&T, which allows the streaming platform not to count toward data limits, encouraging consumers to use the service without worrying about going over their monthly data allotment.
  • The senators said that while the Federal Communications Commission, under the Trump administration, moved in 2017 to repeal net neutrality protections, AT&T's maneuver could still raise potential antitrust concerns.
  • As AT&T notes, its "sponsored data" is available to any other company for purchase, though the senators criticized that the transactions are occuring within the same company.
