Since the system was flooded with comments there is still time to submit comments to the FCC re: Net Neutrality.

John Oliver explains why

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was forced to extend the deadline for comments over its controversial plans to change the way it regulates the internet, after its systems were overwhelmed by thousands of new submissions.

By Tuesday afternoon, more than 780,000 comments had been submitted to the regulator over its proposed “open internet” rules that have cable companies, politicians, consumers and activists at loggerheads over the future of the internet.

Thousands more submissions were expected before the planned deadline of midnight Tuesday, as activists and consumer groups rallied supporters to lobby the FCC to moved: protect “net neutrality” - the concept that all traffic on the internet should be treated equally – and stop cable companies setting up high-speed “fast lanes” for some customers.

The FCC, which has struggled to get Congress to fund an upgrade to its antiquated systems, has now extended the deadline to midnight Friday. A second round of comments on the original submissions will then begin, ending in September, with the FCC expected to make its ruling by the end of the year.
