Comcast hires people to sit in seats during FCC Hearing

Comcast was involved in FCC hearings in which the FCC attempted to get to the bottom of their P2P traffic shaping that has caused P2P users on Comcast to have their outbound traffic delayed.

Their were representatives from organizations at the hearing as well that were speaking on behalf of consumer rights. The public was allowed to attend these hearings as well.

It turns out that Comcast hired a bunch of people to fill the public seating at the hearing. In a brazen move to keep critics out of the hearing.

It is my opinion that the FCC should re-open these hearings in light of this revelation. It is obvious that the stakes are very high and Comcast is doing everything in their power to stifle the voice of the people.
