FCC EXTENDS OPEN INTERNET COMMENT PERIOD

UNTIL FRIDAY, JULY 18 AT MIDNIGHT

Washington, D.C. – The following statement can be attributed to FCC Press Secretary, Kim Hart:

“The deadline for filing submissions as part of the first round of public comments in the FCC’s Open

Internet proceeding arrived today. Not surprisingly, we have seen an overwhelming surge in traffic on our

website that is making it difficult for many people to file comments through our Electronic Comment

Filing System (ECFS). Please be assured that the Commission is aware of these issues and is committed

to making sure that everyone trying to submit comments will have their views entered into the record.

Accordingly, we are extending the comment deadline until midnight Friday, July 18. You also have the

option of emailing your comments to openinternet@fcc.gov, and your views will be placed in the public

record.”
