FCC Employees Looking Out Their Windows on Monday Were Likely in for a Small Surprise

News

“We are parked outside of the @FCC..."

A web company parked outside the Federal Communications Commission Monday to erect a display in favor of net neutrality, on the last day for public comment on the controversial proposed Internet regulations.

"We are parked outside of the @FCC with a giant video billboard, reminding the FCC to save #NetNeutrality!" the web company, NameCheap.com, said in a tweet.

The billboard played user-submitted videos and aired footage from nationwide demonstrations, according to Time.

NameCheap.com also produced a video urging the FCC to abandon the proposed regulations.

If approved, new regulations would allow Internet companies to charge more for "fast lanes" on the Internet, erasing the principle net-neutrality.

Monday was the last day for individuals to submit comments to the FCC regarding the proposed rule changes. The FCC has, thus far, received more than 3 million comments.
