Comments submitted to the FCC regarding its notice of proposed rule-making on the net neutrality issue totaled 1,101,729 as of Tuesday afternoon. An impressive number, but also a nearly unchanged figure. On July 18, the final day of the first period of comment on the proposed net neutrality rules, TechCrunch reported that the FCC had received 1,062,000 comments. That’s dramatically slower than the pace seen previously. The two numbers imply that the FCC has received just under 40,000 comments in the following 12 days, implying a daily average rate of around 3,300. That’s dramatically slower than the pace seen previously. There was a deluge of comments during the final days of the first comment period. So great, in fact, that the FCC’s website struggled to keep up with the traffic, leading the agency to extend its first deadline.
