Google responds to the U.K.'s data protection agency's question following an FCC report earlier this year, and refutes claims that data was "pre-prepared."
The U.K.'s data protection regulator is reinvestigating Google a year after it closed the case, following an FCC report claiming the search giant knew of the data collection.
The UK's data protection agency ruled in 2010 that Google did not breach UK data laws. But an FCC report may force the UK regulator into reinvestigating the search company.
The Information Commissioner's Office is to look into a report by US regulators that found Google could have been aware that its Street View cars were collecting personal data for three years.The US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) report claimed a Google engineer, named by the New York Times as Marius Milner, told colleagues and a senior manager about collecting unencrypted Wi-Fi data.
Google has escaped a wiretap investigation, but it will keep the permanent black mark against its name for "impeding" an FCC probe, which it was fined $25,000 for.

The U.S. FCC has proposed a $25,000 fine after Google "impeded and delayed" an investigation into collecting wireless payload data from unencrypted Wi-Fi networks.
The FCC adopted new rules that will require wireless service providers, such as AT&T and Verizon Wireless, to negotiate wireless data roaming deals with competitors.
Following an investigation with the FCC, Verizon Wireless agreed to credit customers who were erroneously charged for accessing data services on their cell phone.
The web giant and comms provider have asked US authorities to force a level of network neutrality on fixed-line ISPs, but to allow wireless operator freedom to discriminate between online services
The FCC is embarking on a review of several innovations that have now gained critical mass, among them, cloud computing, identity management and government data transparency.
Some more happenings in the xG/xMax world of super-duper low power high speed low cost wireless data, and - for once - I can write about them, as they're not anonymous scandal blog postings saying things I can't check in languages I don't speak about people I don't know.No, this latest intelligence comes from xG itself, which has redesigned its website, produced end of year results and announced that it has FCC approval for its BTS250 base station.
Vint Cerf, one of the co-inventors of the underlying technology that makes the Web work, now Google's Internet evangelist, has issued a call for throughput-based pricing by ISPs. This in response to the Comcast ruling by the FCC, which ordered the cable carrier to stop interfering with certain kinds of traffic, including P2P application data.
Commission enforcement bureau is expected to recommend rejecting cable operators' complaint over Verizon's techniques in retaining customers.(From Reuters)
OK, now this is real advanced stuff. Electrical Engineering degree or IEEE membership probably needed to grasp all the data in the FCC-required, newly posted report on tests for the Wi-Fi enabled BlackBerry 8800/8830 series.
Police and firefighters need more accurate data on mobile callers. The FCC has some ideas--but fixes aren't cheap.
Talk is rife with the stated wishes of telecom-based broadband Internet access providers such as AT&T, Verizon and BellSouth to impose or negotiate surcharges for high-bandwidth content and services such as VoIP.But rather than the looming battle over net neutrality that many (including yours truly) and I predict in Congress, the FCC and the Courts, the issue may be rendered irrelevant by data compression technologies.
Federal regulators have given their OK for seven companies, including one backed by Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates, to use low-orbiting satellites to sell broadband Internet access and other data services. The decision paves the way for a new kind of telecommunications satellite to take wing. Low-orbiting satellites can shuttle incredibly fast Internet service--about 20 times the speed of a T1 line--to an antenna on Earth that then distributes it to homes and offices. These satellites are allowed to orbit different locations. Communications satellite company Teledesic was among the companies winning permission. It plans to launch 30 low-orbiting satellites, according to FCC records. Gates and telecommunications tycoon Craig McCaw are two major backers of the company. Other investors include Motorola and Saudi Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal. --Ben Charny, Special to ZDNet News
