The largest land-line and mobile phone provider in the United States sent 1,500 Georgetown Cupcakes to the headquarters of the Federal Communications Commission, the New York Times reported over the weekend.
“Operation Cupcake” came at a time when the FCC debated whether or not internet service providers should be subject to so-called “net neutrality” regulations last December.
The Times reports the cupcakes were also dropped off at a time when AT&T was wooing competitor T-Mobile into a $39 billion cash-and-stock buyout.
The watchdog group Public Knowledge said the cupcakes cost about $3,700 before delivery charges. [TBD.com]
Beautiful. Way to sweeten them up, AT&T.
