Pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is required to develop a broadband plan by February 17, 2010, that ensures that all people of the United States have access to broadband capability. In April, the FCC released a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) regarding the national broadband plan and, as part of the NOI, the FCC seeks comment on a broad range of privacy issues related to broadband connections, including consumer expectations of privacy, the use of behavioral advertising, and deep packet inspection practices. In addition, the FCC asks whether Congress or government agencies should address privacy protections, or whether industry selfregulation is more appropriate. Comments were due June 8, 2009, and reply comments are due July 7, 2009.
