New York Attorney General Wants Net Neutrality Vote to Be Delayed

05 Декабря, 2017, 02:37 | Author: Grady King
  • In India the debate on net neutrality picked speed after Facebook launched the Free Basics program in December 2015

Data scientist Jeff Kao has also run an analysis of the public record, and estimates that over a million comments filed in support of repealing net neutrality may have been fake.

According to one report from data scientist Jeff Kao, over 1.3 million comments have been proven to be fraudulent in nature thus far, with many comments impersonating USA residents or using duplicate email addresses. Public Knowledge contends that this would leave consumers at the mercy of internet service providers.

The FCC did not immediately reply when asked why it made a decision to cooperate with the investigation or whether it would delay the vote. One of the people whose name was used to submit a fake net neutrality comment included Schneiderman's assistant press secretary, he said.

Now more than a couple dozen senators are asking FCC Chairman Ajit Pai to delay the vote in the wake of questions about the 21 million-plus comments about net neutrality submitted to the agency during the public comment period.

"The FCC is on course to eliminate net neutrality guided by a record corrupted by hundreds of thousands of filings with stolen identities", Rosenworcel said.

A spokesperson for the FCC said, "At today's press conference, they didn't identify a single comment relied upon in the draft order as being questionable". "This is a big step but given the FCC's conduct over the past eight months we remain skeptical", Schneiderman said.

The FCC's inspector general told Schneiderman Monday it would be assisting his office, but the attorney general said the agency needed to go farther. Now he is FCC chairman and wants to roll back the net neutrality rules that were adopted two years ago.

"A free and open Internet is vital to ensuring a level playing field online, and we believe that your proposed action may be based on an incomplete understanding of the public record in this proceeding", the Senators wrote.

The FCC is expected to vote on December 14.

Last week, on Wednesday, Attorney General Schneiderman launched a new webpage for New Yorkers to check whether their identities were wrongfully used without their consent.

The FCC is expected to vote on February 14 on Chairman Ajit Pai's plan to scrap the 2015 landmark net neutrality rules, moving to give broadband service providers sweeping power over what content consumers can access.

The FCC received nearly 23 million comments since last spring, when Pai first made it clear he would review the FCC's framework for its net neutrality rules, Variety reported.

It seems that the public letter-writing trend is catching on, with 28 U.S. senators now co-signing a letter to the FCC officially asking the commission to delay their December 14th vote.

"One of the arguments is the government shouldn't get involved in the Internet", said Anthony Martino, director of Northeast Cyber Security and Forensic Center at Utica College.

"While I fundamentally disagree with the merits of the FCC's proposal, what is equally concerning is the lack of integrity to the FCC's process that has led to this point", said FCC Commissioner Rosenworcel, a Democrat.
