New York State Attorney General Slams FCC Regarding Net Neutrality Investigation

By Barry Skidelsky

The Office of the New York State Attorney General (NYS AG) is investigating whether any public comments filed at the FCC regarding net neutrality rules wrongfully used New Yorkers' identities without their consent.

As Tech Crunch put it: "If the FCC's refusal to acknowledge the vast public outcry against its plan to gut net neutrality isn't enough of an outrage, its total disinterest in investigating how that same comment system may have been gamed by fake users posing as real Americans adds a bit more insult to injury."

Reportedly, the NYS AG asked the FCC to cooperate with its investigation, but the federal agency has been uncooperative. Thus, the NYS AG not only released an open letter to FCC Chairman Pai, but also set up a dedicated web-page soliciting help from the general public.
