FCC Extends Comment Submission Deadline on National Broadband Plan
The FCC has issued an order (PDF) extending the comment period on the National Broadband Plan to July 21, 2009. The initial due date had been July 7, 2009. Several organizations asked for the extension, noting that over 500 comments had already been submitted, and that they needed more time to process those comments and come up with responses. They also said the 4th of July weekend would limit their ability to respond.
The FCC is to report its plan to the President on February 17, 2010, the anniversary of his signing the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009.
So, you still have time to get your comments in, but you better get started reading. Google’s initial response alone (PDF) is 43 pages, and others are just as long.
