FCC has closed its public comment period on Net Neutrality issue
Earlier this week, the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) closed its public comment period on the controversial Net Neutrality issue. The FCC had opened the process of Net Neutrality deliberations to the public on May 15.
During the four-month period of public comment on Net Neutrality, the FCC received a total of more than 3 million comments from the people --- marking the highest-ever volume of such input received by the FCC in its history.
The overwhelming response to the Net Neutrality deliberation came after the FCC sought public feedback with regard to its proposed changes to Net Neutrality. The key change which the FCC is considering with regard to Net Neutrality is whether the Internet should be reclassified as a telecommunications service.
In addition, the FCC is also contemplating whether it should preserve what has been called 'Net Neutrality' - that is, equal Internet access for all users - or make provisions for 'fast lanes' and 'slow lanes' which will be governed to varying degrees by moneyed interests.
The changes which the FCC proposes to make to Net Neutrality are being challenged by a multitude of citizen and interest-group respondents mainly due to the reason that Net Neutrality, in essence, guarantees that all websites - whether small or big - are on a level playing field --- a scenario which will be threatened by the proposed changes to the FCC's Net Neutrality regulations governing the Internet.
