What the death of broadband privacy rules means for you
NEW YORK -- Now that both houses of Congress have voted to block Obama-era broadband privacy rules, what does that mean for you? In the short term, not so much. The rules, which would have put tough restrictions on what companies like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T can do with information such as your internet history, hadn't yet gone into effect. So if President Donald Trump signs the measure, as the White House has indicated he will, the status quo will remain.
