After several tech giants, including Google and Facebook, supportedFederal Communications Commission's (FCC) plan to roll back Obama-era net neutrality rules, Apple called on the United States communications regulatory agency to keep "strong, enforceable open internet protections". Based on the FCC's latest data, 57 percent of Americans with access to fixed broadband at or above 25Mbps/3Mbps-the current FCC benchmark for advanced broadband service-have only one choice of broadband provider. As part of the FCC's review of internet regulations, Pai has asked whether the FCC needs rules that prohibit blocking or throttling traffic, or providing Internet fast lanes. The group also adds that the unique comments were the ones that individuals took time to write and are in favor of Title II net neutrality rules.
While millions of individuals (and possibly a few bots) weighed in on the proposal, so did companies. "However, until a permanent framework is in place, the FCC can and should ensure a durable backstop and maintain core open internet protections through one or more of the options outlined in our comments and the comments of others". This means that many consumers can not switch providers even if they learn that their broadband provider interferes with the internet's openness in a way that they oppose.

Note that they include a number of developers who already have published virtual reality apps, or just apps for Windows. This includes the recently revealed Dell Visor , which is priced at $400 and can offer support for full motion control.
Apple, on the other hand, specifically urged Pai not to roll back an existing ban against so-called "fast lanes", which might allow broadband providers someday to charge for faster delivery of tech companies' movies, music or other content.
In the four-page filing to the Federal Communications Commission, Apple laid out its thoughts on how the FCC should retain "strong and enforceable" open Internet protections. That's the current net neutrality approach that Pai - with the backing of companies like AT&T and Comcast - hopes to scrap.

Playing up a track record in innovative devices that goes back to the Macintosh in 1984, Apple said that its ecosystem of devices, operating systems, apps and online stores requires "fair and open access to broadband services".
The FCC will continue to collect and post those comments, but only those filed before August 30 are part of the official record the commission has to consider as it makes the decision on whether to roll back Title II classification of internet access providers and reconsider the rules against blocking, throttling and paid prioritization.
