Online, the bosses of the four Internet service giants will defend their business practices before authorities and ensure that their activities increase competition and provide consumers with the services they need.
The testimony will take place as part of a hearing that is connected with the investigation into whether the current antitrust laws in the United States provide an opportunity to effectively control the tech giants.
