The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has fined Google $25,000 for hampering an investigation into whether the company’s Street View mapping team illegally collected data from Wi-Fi networks. Though clearing Google in the investigation, the FCC said the company “deliberately impeded and delayed the bureau’s investigation by failing to respond to requests for material information and to provide certifications and verifications of its responses.”
