OFCOM Closes Consultation Early

>As some might know, OFCOM’s running a consultation on the aspects of the Digital Economy Act it’s supposed to enforce. Now, in theory, it’s supposed to be open until at least 5pm, but when I went to check the consultation document on another computer (so I could read both at once) I found a 404.

I then went to find the consultation document and found it closed. I’ve done a screenshot, including a UK clock, so you can tell.

I’ve also tweeted to let them know (if it’s not on the side still –>)

The consultation is a bit of a farce still, it’s incredibly complex to respond, in comparison to most consultations. I’ll put my response up later. (and if I ever manage to get it submitted)

UPDATE 12:18 EDT/17:18 UK time (BST)
About the time I took the screenshot, they reopened it. They just closed it again about 2 minutes ago.
