AT&T Issues an Apology

In a surprise move, that probably came after enough people published posts like this, AT&T today recanted from their draconian language in their term of service.

In this post, you can find AT&T's apology, along with the new paragraph 5.1 (Suspension/Termination clause) language.

I especially liked the following quote:
AT&T will clarify the language in its Internet Terms of Service agreements to reiterate the company's commitment to freedom of speech and open dialogue...whether that be via the Internet or elsewhere on the AT&T network.

AT&T's Terms of Service follow the company's longstanding respect for our customers' freedom of speech, and clarifies that we will not terminate or suspend a customers' Internet access service based upon their political views or criticism of AT&T.

Longstanding respect... yeah right...
