The FCC is in the midst of a comment period on its proposals and encourages public participation. Comments are due by July 17, 2017, and reply comments are due by August 16, 2017. Comments may be filed via the FCC's Electronic Comment Filing System in WC Docket No. 17-108.

Post Re: FCC Plans To Kill Net Neutrality Soon

The comments were another area of dishonesty and trickery...

More Than 80% Of All Net Neutrality Comments Were Sent By Bots, Researchers Say
Of all the more than 22 million comments submitted to the FCC website and through the agency's API found that only 3,863,929 comments were "unique," according to a new analysis by Gravwell, a data analytics company. The rest? A bunch of copy-pasted comments, most of them likely by automated astroturfing bots, almost all of them—curiously—against net neutrality.

"Using our (admittedly) simple classification, over 95 percent of the organic comments are in favor of Title II regulation," Corey Thuen, the founder of Gravwell, told Motherboard in an email.

Thuen was referring to a section of the Communications Act that imposes regulations designed to protect net neutrality. In 2015, the FCC voted to reclassify internet broadband as a "telecommunications service" under Title II, effectively institutionalizing net neutrality, handing a win to open internet advocates, and a loss to big telecom.
