    Update: FCC fires back at AT&T with questions about its paused fiber rollout

    (engadget.com) - Yesterday the Commission issued a series of questions to the telecom giant asking -- among other things -- about the extent of AT&T's rollout plans and whether bringing fiber to all those new doorsteps would ultimately prove unprofitable. Oh, and the FCC wants to see every document AT&T has relating to its decision to limit its fiber rollout to the 2 million customers it promised as part of its plan to potentially buy DirecTV. That fiber rollout has been mired in confusion basically since day one thanks to AT&T's terribly vague statements -- it first named 100 towns and cities that could get that high-speed fiber service, and then mentioned its expansion of reach to those 2 million new customers. It's never been clear where those 2 million people would actually come from (or even if all those towns will ever get AT&T fiber), but the FCC doesn't seem pleased with the implication that AT&T would only do the bare minimum needed for regulatory lip-service. Anyway, the deadline for all that juicy info? One week. Your move, AT&T....
