FCC Proposes Stricter Privacy Rules for Internet Service Providers

The new rules would ensure your broadband or wireless service provider couldn’t share your personal data with marketers without permission. That’s the message the Federal Communications Commission is sending with a proposed regulation that would safeguard private customer information and require broadband and wireless companies to get consumers’ permission before sharing data with third parties such as marketers.

Chairman Tom Wheeler circulated his proposal among the other four FCC commissioners on Thursday. He expects the entire FCC to vote to open the proposal for public comment at its meeting on March 31. Actual rules would likely be voted on later this year after the comment period ends.
