We'd Get Unprecedented Internet Privacy Under This New FCC Proposal
The Federal Communication Commission's proposed rules would place stronger protections between Internet service providers and their customers.By Evan Thomas | March 11, 2016
The Federal Communications Commission has proposed new rules for Internet service providers that would give Internet users unprecedented privacy protection.
Unprecedented, because last year's reclassification of ISPs under Title II gives the FCC more regulatory control than it's ever had. This would be the first time the FCC makes official tweaks to provider privacy practices.
The proposal says customers deserve choice when it comes to the information they share and transparency in how ISPs use that data, and should expect ISPs will handle that information securely.
