Verizon has implemented changes in speed restrictions for emergency workers in wake of California’s largest wildfire on record. The telecommunications company had slowed firefighters’ internet service while they battled the blaze in August, crippling an emergency communications truck’s data speeds and forcing firefighters to use other agencies’ internet connections and their personal cellphones.
Under its internet plan, Santa Clara County had used up its monthly data capacity, which allowed Verizon to significantly slow service. Although the high-speed wireless data plan provides an unlimited amount of data at a set monthly cost, speeds can be reduced if the consumer exceeds certain levels of use during that billing cycle.
Verizon restored full speeds only after the department subscribed to a more expensive plan, a move the company has since called an “operational error,” as they should have lifted the data cap as soon as firefighters called.

After a 6-week trial, a federal judge recently approved AT&T’s $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, ruling the government failed to prove that the deal violates antitrust law. The transaction, which will unite Time Warner's TV shows and movies with AT&T's enormous distribution system, including cell phone and satellite networks, is one of the biggest in media and telecom industry history.
When the deal was announced in 2016, AT&T said it needed Time Warner in order to compete against companies like Netflix and Amazon in the rapidly changing media landscape. Trump spoke out against the deal, citing the size of the combined companies. The antitrust division of Justice Department sued in November 2017 to stop it, arguing that the combination would harm competition and raise prices for consumers.
