STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER JESSICA ROSENWORCEL IN RESPONSE TO FCC’S INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT FINDING NO DISTRIBUTED DENIAL OF SERVICE ATTACK DURING NET NEUTRALITY PROCEEDING
WASHINGTON, August 6, 2018:
“The Inspector General Report tells us what we knew all along: the FCC’s claim that it was the victim of a DDoS attack during the net neutrality proceeding is bogus. What happened instead is obvious—millions of Americans overwhelmed our online system because they wanted to tell us how important internet openness is to them and how distressed they were to see the FCC roll back their rights. It’s unfortunate that this agency’s energy and resources needed to be spent debunking this implausible claim.”
