Net Neutrality Ending and So is Your Chance to Comment

ISD's picture

Make up your mind, then let your voice be heard. Soon,

The public comment period on the Federal Communications Commission proposal to allow some big internet corporation to pay extra to "come first" in delivery and routing runs until July 15​th, at which point a second phase of commenting will open up. (That second phase will run for 57 days beyond that, until September 10th, and is meant to allow the public to reply to comments that the FCC received during the first phase.)

Given the amount of interest the FCC is expecting, it has set up an email address, openinternet@fcc.gov , where it's also accepting comments in order to make the whole process a bit easier than the official process in the regulation.

Regardless of the method, all comments to the FCC are made publicly. Comments on the proposal have technically been rolling in for months now, but the initial public comment period is currently running out.
