What We Said to the FCC About Net Neutrality

Aug 12, 2014

COMMENTS ON COMMENTS: 10% of the 1.1 million comments submitted to the FCC about net neutrality had exactly 1,477 characters--the exact length of the default template from Battle for Net Neutrality. Over at Minimaxir, Max Woolf has created a series of graphs that break down the comments by city, keywords (Comcast and Verizon being frequently mentioned) and date submitted. The source for this data comes from the FCC, which Woolf has also organized in this spreadsheet. (Watch the language there, fellas.)

Some of those comments to the FCC included letters from CEOs of edtech companies, including TeachBoost’s Andrew Gioia, who told EdSurge that the proposed rules would endanger “the kind of open, free Internet that we grew up on.”
