CFA and Other Public Interest Groups Urge FCC to Deny Stay of Broadband Privacy Rules

Staying the broadband privacy rules would harm consumers and other parties, and would therefore not serve the public interest. The rules ensure consumers have meaningful choice, greater transparency, and strong security protections for personal information collected by ISPs. Granting a stay would leave consumers unprotected unless and until new rules are established, during which time ISPs could use the troves of sensitive information they collect without giving their customers a choice about whether or how it can be used or disclosed.
