FCC: Over 1 million comments have now been filed on net neutrality

For those of you that are counting, the FCC says more than 1 million people have now submitted comments on net neutrality.

With one more day to go until the extended comment period closes, the FCC's net neutrality docket now has more comments than any other rulemaking proceeding. Janet Jackson's infamous nip-slip inspired the public to submit 1.4 million complaints, but the issue never got its own proceeding.

Correction: An earlier version of this post said that the Janet Jackson incident held the record for the FCC's most-commented docket. In fact, Jackson's wardrobe malfunction was never on an FCC docket.
