The New York attorney general’s office is investigating whether internet providers are over-charging consumers for broadband speeds they advertise but never deliver. According to reports from Bloomberg and Reuters, letters were sent to three internet providers in New York last week — Verizon, Time Warner Cable, and Cablevision — asking them to disclose how they advertise internet speeds to customers and the results of any internal testing of their services. – James Vincent, The Verge
