If you want the to let the Federal Communications Commission know how you feel about the agency’s push for a high-speed Internet nationwide, the FCC recently launched a blog and Twitter account to get feedback.
BlogBand, which is written by FCC staff, has been posting since Aug. 18. It’s an attempt to get the public involved as the FCC creates a plan to offer all Americans high-speed Internet. But who will pay for it? How much will it cost? Will it be free? Is there not enough free Wi-Fi available already?
But first, the blogs asks people to weigh in on what exactly is broadband? Some comments so far from readers: “Has NO limits in data download/upload” and “IMHO, anything less [than 10 Mbps] is unpatriotic.”
It does look like the blog is moderating comments, so discussion is civil. Better yet, someone on the blog does respond to questions.
The FCC has about six months (177 days as of today) to submit its national broadband plan to Congress so now’s the time to have some impact.
