Earlier this month, the Federal Communications Commission released for comment its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) concerning privacy regulations for broadband Internet access service (BIAS) providers.  The NPRM follows the FCC decision last year to apply the “core customer privacy protections of Section 222” of the Communications Act to BIAS providers.  Consistent with the fact sheet released earlier by FCC Chairman Wheeler, which we previously reported on, the proposed rule centers on three principles ‒ transparency, choice, and security.  The NPRM poses hundreds of questions – from whether it should prohibit binding arbitration clauses in BIAS customer contracts to whether it should specify the frequency of security assessments or give customers a right to access and correct their information.  And it asks stakeholders to consider these questions in their comments on the proposal, with initial comments due May 27, 2016.
