1 million strong for net neutrality!
Earlier this week, under crushing traffic, the FCC pushed its deadline back for the first round of public comment to Friday, to allow everyone a chance to submit their views.
The issue of net neutrality, and especially the FCC’s current notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM), has rightfully caught on in the public domain, and the FCC comment page in record breaking fashion. According to the FCC’s Gigi Sohn, 1,030,000 comments had been submitted at the time of writing. The only issue that even comes close as far as comments to the FCC page is Janet Jackson’s “Wardrobe Malfunction” at the Super Bowl.
The next question is whether FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler will be swayed by the copious correspondence. The future of internet freedom hangs in the balance. No pressure.[More.](http://techcrunch.com/2014/07/17/the-fcc-has-received-more-than-1000000-comments-on-net-neutrality/?utm_campaign=fb&ncid=fb)
