3 Million People Commented on Net Neutrality Issue

3 Million People Commented on Net Neutrality Issue

According to information from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the agency has already received a record 3 million comments from consumers, advocates, companies and lawmakers on the suggested new Internet traffic or so-called “net neutrality” rules. Apparently, the comments continued to be received at the end of Monday as the deadline for submissions to the official record approached.

A few months ago, FCC chairman revealed his proposal to set new Open Internet rules to regulate how ISPs manage web traffic on their networks. According to his proposal, such broadband providers as Comcast Corp would be prohibited from blocking people’s access to sites or apps, but enable it to charge content companies (Netflix, for example) to ensure quick delivery of their traffic to subscribers.

In response, consumer advocates compared proposed rules with creating fast and slow “lanes” on the Internet. The US citizens overwhelmed the FCC with comments via online automated submission forms, email and mail. The statistics say that the net neutrality submissions more than doubled the previous record of 1.4 million comments. Those were submitted about Janet Jackson’s accidental breast exposure during the Super Bowl a decade ago. In addition, this number also smashed records at other federal agencies: for instance, over 1 million comments were received by the State Department back in 2013 on its environmental review of the Keystone XL pipeline.

In the meantime, it should be noted that no formal deadline exists for the FCC to set new rules. This only requires a majority vote at the 5-member FCC for approval. Taking into account that the commission has scheduled a series of workshops on technological, economic and legal aspects of the rules to October, the vote is expected in November the earliest.

A couple of workshops open to the public in Washington and streamed live online started on Tuesday. They focus on policy approaches to the rules and on mobile broadband.

FCC chairman explained he wanted to set new rules as quickly as possible, taking into consideration the void created by a federal court’s rejection of the FCC’s first version earlier this year. In other words, the FCC could present a new version of the rules before the end of 2014.

Apparently, the outcry on net neutrality prompted the FCC to alter the plan and wonder whether some or all pay-for-priority deals should be banned and whether Internet service providers should be entirely reclassified and be treated more like public utilities. The latter approach is backed by advocacy groups, but opposed by the broadband providers.

The FCC has repeatedly reassured the people of their intent to police any discrimination, but the ISPs said that this wouldn’t be in their business interest anyway.

No avatarLOL at "slow" and "fast" lanes of traffic on the American internet, its the slowest network on the planet, its mostly unusable to a person from a country with...real internet.

Warwick, if I have shares in that company THEY BETTER BE MAKING ME MONEY...its why I bought shares and thats why they still exist. It's the government that you should blame for the current broadband (lol 4mbps) providers monopoly...and everything that comes with it.
