Broadband Industry Groups Ask FCC to Reconsider Unnecessary Privacy Rules

Last week, multiple industry groups representing Internet service providers filed a petition asking the FCC to stay the unnecessary privacy regulations. The petition also discussed how ISPs are taking steps to protect customers’ privacy online. The groups, which include CTIA, NCTA, USTelecom, as well as various advertising and advocacy groups, state that the FTC's framework has protected Internet users for years while the FCC’s new rules create an inconsistent and confusing framework that weakens data protection online.
