The Federal Communications Commission has extended the deadline for feedback on the issue of net neutrality by five days, making the new deadline September 15.
This follows reports that the Writers Guild of America was pushing for more feedback on the issue.
This is not the first time that deadlines for the issue were pushed. During the first round of open comments on net neutrality, the FCC had to push back the deadline from July 15 to July 18 because of the fact that the agency’s website crashed due to the overwhelming response. 1.1 million comments were made during that round. 80 percent of these comments were for the idea of net neutrality.
This extension will give people a few more days to make comments and express their opinions on the issue of what the government should do in regards to the regulation of Internet traffic.
