On July 12, 2017, there were over 5 million emails to congress, 2 million FCC comments, and over 120,000 phone calls to congress calling for Net Neutrality to remain in place. In fact, as noted by Fight for the Future, "the volume of participation was so high that the FCC has been 'rate limiting' submissions to their docket. There are an enormous number of comments queued up that will be submitted to their system before the July 17 deadline, as fast as their system can handle."  Freedman Consulting, LLC, in a report published on this topic, noted that "Americans of all political parties overwhelmingly support the values of net neutrality and want to preserve existing net neutrality protections. A strong majority (77 percent) of Americans support keeping the existing net neutrality rules in place. This view crosses party lines, as 73 percent of Republicans and 80 percent of Democrats, and 76 percent of Independents want to keep the FCC's Open Internet rules. 81 percent of Americans agree that ISPs should not be able to block or throttle websites or charge extra for preferred access to consumers." 
Important note: these numbers STILL represent only a portion of the final totals, and due to the massive numbers, comments and emails will be delivered over several days. We will release additional updates as we continue documenting what has happened. 
With more than 2 million comments to the FCC, we have nearly tripled the record set by the September 10th, 2014 "Internet Slowdown" day.

Hundreds of popular websites featured pop-ups suggesting that those sites had been blocked or throttled by Internet service providers. Some sites got hilariously creative—Twitch replaced all of its emojis with that annoying loading icon. Netflix shared GIFs that would never finish loading. PornHub simply noted that “slow porn sucks.”
Have you not spoken up yet? There's still time! The FCC is inviting comments until July 17, so head over to battleforthenet.com/July12 and tell your congressmen what you think, whether you're in support of keeping the existing Net Neutrality rules or repealing. All opinions matter!
