Say you don't feel like plowing through my recent investigative report on "WiFi Hotspot Blocking Persists Despite FCC Crackdown." Maybe I can at least entice you to check out the infographic my colleague Steve Sauer assembled for that story, as well as the consumer complaints to the FCC themselves, which you can scroll through via the Scribd widget embedded below. 

Those complaints were gathered via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the FCC in the wake of the agency fining Marriott and others big bucks for purposely blocking people's Wi-Fi hotspot devices.

If you'd like to know more about how I went about making that FOIA request, you can read my post about that on LinkedIn.
