California Public Utilities Commission
On June 9, 2011, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) voted 3-2 to open an Investigation into the proposed merger of AT&T and T-Mobile. The three votes in favor of opening the investigation were also (not coincidentally) the three newest Commissioners appointed by Governor Brown.
New Media Rights and UCAN urged the CPUC to open an investigation in a letter responding to AT&T’s advice letter notifying the CPUC of it’s intent to merge assets. As the CPUC has heeded that request, UCAN will participate in the CPUC Investigation along with New Media Rights and the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse. This will be our next step in opposing the merger, the organizations have already jointly filed a Petition to Deny the merger with the FCC.

UCAN addressed the regulation issue with the CPUC and received confirmation that the phone service is indeed regulated.
