We, the undersigned public interest organizations, write to express our strong concerns regarding the consumer privacy risks posed by the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC’s) Consumer Broadband Test and Mobile Broadband Test. These tests, according to the FCC, aim to provide citizens “better information about the quality and availability of their broadband and mobile broadband connections.” But the FCC appears to be collecting more personal information than necessary, failing to fully disclose what it is collecting, and providing this information to law enforcement without any due process or judicial scrutiny.
