This reading reflects the Scale-free Networks reading in the sense that it addresses the networking foundation but it shows how a factor can manipulate the entire system. AT&T are abusing loopholes in the the flawed views the FCC has on IP’s. AT&T are effectively placing impact on nodes and hubs of the public telecommunications network. They are attempting to replace the portions of their networks that still use circuit-switching technology with equipment that uses Internet Protocol (IP) to route voice and data traffic. As a possible result to AT&T’s interference would be higher prices for their service, constant service disruptions and telecom blackouts, and inequality and discrimination.
