As if robocalls weren't annoying enough, now they're reportedly
spreading misinformation in a fight against net neutrality.

This includes falsely saying that an upcoming California net
neutrality bill may raise their cell phone bill by $30 if passed. One
of the robocalls, which are likely targeting senior citizens, was
transcribed in a report by Motherboard, it states:

"Your Assembly member will be voting on a proposal by San Francisco
politicians that could increase your cellphone bill by $30 a month and
slow down your data. We can't afford higher cell phone bills. We can't
afford slower data. We can't afford Senate Bill 822."
