CEO Randall Stephenson weighs in on President Obama's call for tighter rules on broadband providers. He also talks up AT&T's big bet on Mexico.
AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson warned that he could hold off on many of his company's capital investment plans -- including fast new fiber lines -- if uncertainty persists over how the US government will regulate the Internet.
"It's prudent to pause," he said at an investor conference Wednesday. "We want to make sure we have line of sight on this process and where these rules could land, and then re-evaluate."
