The Hill: AT&T and DirecTV are pushing back against conditions other companies want to impose on their proposed merger. “Opponents continue to propose a laundry list of additional conditions that are unrelated to this transaction, unnecessary to address any transaction-specific harm, or both,” the companies said in a filing posted by the Federal Communications Commission.The filing comes after Dish and backbone Internet service provider Cogent Communications asked that the post-merger company be required to offer stand-alone broadband service at certain speeds and prices for seven years.
