When a Stanford researcher removed all the duplicate and fake comments filed with the Federal Communications Commission last year, he found that 99.7 percent of public comments — about 800,000 in all — were pro-net neutrality.
Details may be found in an article in the Motherboard web site at: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/3kmedj/997-percent-of-unique-fcc-comments-favored-net-neutrality.
So why did the FCC repeal its net neutrality guidelines? Could it have been because of industry lobbyists who paid (gasp) lots of money to politicians and others to influence the FCC’s policies in favor of multi-billion dollar corporations and against overwhelming public opinion?
