The New York attorney general's office is widening an investigation
into fraudulent net neutrality comments, saying it estimates that up
to 9.5 million comments were submitted using stolen identities.

NY AG Barbara Underwood "subpoenaed more than a dozen telecommuni-
cations trade groups, lobbying contractors, and Washington advocacy
organizations on Tuesday, seeking to determine whether the groups
submitted millions of fraudulent public comments to sway a critical
federal decision on Internet regulation," The New York Times reported
yesterday.
