Net neutrality fight gets ugly with robocalls spreading false claims [telecom]

The robocalls reportedly target senior citizens in California.

By Gordon Gottsegen

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."
