FCC removes report on AT&T/T-Mobile merger - Is the replacement version the same? http://j.mp/rHEMch (This message on Google+) - - - Yesterday I noted the availability of a long FCC report explaining why they felt the AT&T/T-Mobile merger was not in the pubic interest. Various observers have interpreted the report as the FCC calling AT&T a liar regarding various issues. AT&T condemned the release of the report. This morning I was flooded with messages noting a 404 on the relevant FCC link. The original report was (as far as I can tell now) at: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2011/db1129/DA-11-1955A2.pdf This link is indeed now dead. Until a few minutes ago, the cover letter for the report continued to exist at: http://transition.fcc.gov/Daily_Releases/Daily_Business/2011/db1129/DA-11-1955A1.pdf But that link has also now gone dead, though the Google Search results for that URL still show that it was originally present. The report now is available at: http://transition.fcc.gov/transaction/ATT-TMO-redacted-PDF-final.pdf This version shows significant blocks of redacted "Confidential Information" and does not appear to be text searchable. I did not have time yesterday to go through the report at the original location in detail. I would appreciate it if anyone who has a local copy of the report from the original location, would confirm to me that the report from both locations were identical -- in particular that the redactions noted in the current version were present in the version that the FCC apparently removed from its original URL. Thanks much. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (email@example.com): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren Twitter: https://twitter.com/laurenweinstein Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com
