Federal Communications Commission (FCC), 445 12th Street SW, Washington, DC, 20554, United States

The Federal Communications Commission's Open Internet docket is starting to fill up with new comments, according to the FCC's online list of the most active proceedings. It remains number three on the top 10 list with 402 comments in the past 30 days. That is still way below the 992 Lifeline subsidy program compliance filings in that last 30 days and the 1,246 filings on the high-cost fund, both of those related to the Universal Service Fund for broadband subsidies. But it is the busiest docket since last week, when some Democratic members of Congress called on the public to begin flooding the FCC again with support for retaining the Title II-based Open Internet order. There have been over 200 comments logged since last week (there were 178 as of Feb. 9). By contrast, the two USF dockets only logged 68 new comments combined.
