FCC Warns Broadband Internet Service Providers Of Coming Expanded Title II Privacy Regulation
May 30, 2015

Accordingly, as of June 12, 2015, and absent a judicial stay order, broadband providers will be subject to expanded requirements aimed at protecting consumer privacy and restricting the use of customer data.
