Who is taking notes?

Ok call me paranoid , in the tool the first question is "Where are you accessing the internet? followed by "Current address where you are accessing the internet"??? Who is housing that information?

You are actually worried about this? Do you honestly think it would be difficult for them to gather the information on their own if they REALLY wanted to? They know who I am and where I live, and I am sure quite a bit more than that.

The government already knows where you live and what kind of cereal you eat. They don't need to harvest that info via the FCC website.

They already have that info... So yes, you're just a paranoid person.

They might know what I had for breakfast but not where I live! Cereally though, they don't know all that much -- yet. That's what Census 2010 is for

The FCC. It is not stored by or disclosed to Ookla or Measurement lab.

Which seems like a pretty good use of the data, as compared to say Kroger stores marking beer up on friday morning knowing you buy yours friday night, and dropping the price monday am, knowing you never buy during the week.
