Telecom operators warn Congress over Google plan for encrypted DNS

Friday 20 September 2019 | 09:14 CET | News
US telecom operators have turned to Congress to try to stop Google from implementing a new form of encrypted DNS resolution. They fear Goolge acting on its own to implement encrypted DNS lookups in the Chrome broswer and Android OS could give the company too much power and restrict ISPs' access to the system. The industry groups USTelecom, CTIA and NCTA sent a joint letter to several Congressional committees active in the area asking them to look into the matter.
