On an Open Internet

The issue of an Open & Vibrant Internet is every so crucial to all--especially for someone like me who's working to get a nascent start-up off the ground.   I took the opportunity to share my concerns on it with the FCC and was surprised when I received this acknowledgement from the FCC:

Thank you very much for the input you provided into the public record of our ongoing Open Internet proceeding.

As of 11:59pm on September 15, 2014, the comment cycle of this proceeding is now closed. I'm very glad that the record will include your thoughts and opinions—along with those of others from all over the country—in what has become the most commented FCC proceeding in history.

I am a strong supporter of the Open Internet, and I will fight to keep the internet open. Thanks once more for sharing your views.

Tom Wheeler
Federal Communications Commission

I can't help but wonder when Chairman Wheeler will actually live up to what was noted in this email.   Time will only tell.
