CU supports DC’s Broadband Privacy bill

Consumers Union joins other privacy and consumer protection organizations in supporting B22-0403, the Broadband Internet Privacy Act of 2017, which would provide District of Columbia residents increased choice, security, and transparency over how internet service providers (ISPs) use data they collect from and about their customers.We applaud the Councilmembers for their leadership in introducing this vital legislation, and we urge the Chairman to schedule a hearing on this bill for public discussion.
