(Washington Times) The Federal Communications Commission paid out more than $1 million in federal stimulus funds to a London company through a contract that reported creating no jobs in the U.S. or overseas, procurement records show.

The vendor, SamKnows Ltd., won the stimulus-funded contract to help the FCC collect data on broadband speeds of various Internet service providers (ISPs).

The company said in a statement when it started work with the FCC that a separate company, SamKnows Inc., would “appoint US partners and create new jobs for American workers, both in the short term and in the long term.”
