Watched that Last Week Tonight episode a few hours ago. Was really good; I think it's the show's best yet. The net neutrality part was the best part too. It's pretty rare to see roughly 14 minutes of uninterrupted air time given to one topic. Even if it is based in comedy, its refreshing and it was informative.
Oliver is right. The subject is so boring to hear about that a majority of people, especially those less tech savvy among us, turn away quickly from the conversation. But the window is still open to talk to the FCC. As John Oliver exclaimed, "Seize your moments my lovely trolls, turn on CAPS LOCK and fly my pretty's! Fly!" That comment was intended to get all the internet commenters (youtube trolls) to comment on the FCC's .gov page, giving their opinion on the the internet fast lane provisions that the FCC is proposing.
We were given a 120 day window to have an "open discussion" with the FCC on this; they specifically said they want everyone's opinion on this. That window is still very much open. So, Oliver implored the public to do so. So do I. I recommend anyone reading this forum to go to the below link and let the FCC know what you think on the new proposals. If you read both the blogs Zach mentioned, it should give you a solid idea of the history of the FCC, Internet Neutrality, and the newly proposed changes that threaten the freedom of equal data transfer on the internet. OR just google search the topic. Plenty of info out there, either way. Here's the FCC link:
