The deadline for public comments WAS July 15, 2014. However, in light of the huge volumn of comments that was apparently too much for the FCC's servers (or perhaps they didn't pay their ISP extra for the "fast lane") the official comment period has been extended to July 18. This means you still have a chance to voice your position on the issue. Comment at the FCC's website, the preceeding number is 14-28. https://www.fcc.gov/comments

Quick update. The comment period was extended to September 15, 2014 due to problems with the online submission forms. So, as of today you still can and should give your input to the FCC. Source: Computerworld
