Comcast complains about California's net neutrality law, and it may really have a valid point



Jon Brodkin writes for Ars Technica that Comcast complains that its revenue will go down under California’s net neutrality law, due to go into effect Jan. 1 unless stopped.
  
Comcast (and ATT) want the ability to charge very large intermediaries like Cogent more to make efficient connections.  But Comcast’s complaint would not affect “ordinary” websites.  But transit companies like Cogent claim they are actually carrying traffic for free. 

The New York State attorney general is looking for evidence of fraud in more than 22 million comments supposedly submitted to the FCC in 2017, New York Times story by Nicholas Confessore.
