After being forced by the SEC to allow shareholders to vote on net-neutrality proposals, it appears that AT&T had no reason to fear allowing this poll to be taken. The company previously stated that net neutrality measures would directly interfere with its network management practices and seriously impair its ability to provide wireless broadband service to its customers."
AT&T's shareholders seem to share the same opinion. In an overwhelming majority of 94.1 percent, voters decided to reject the net neutrality initiative that would force AT&T "..commit to operating its wireless network without the ability to privilege, degrade or prioritize any traffic."
Similar measures are to eventually be voted on industry wide. Verizon is set to undergo a similar voting process on net neutrality measures in May. Optimistically we can hope that this will result at some point in carriers being forced into practicing net neutrality as it seems the FCC will never enforce these kinds of standards on their own.
