In response to a request from the Federal Communication Commission concerning the future of the US Broadband Infrastructure, EPIC urged the FCC to secure the privacy interests of consumers and Internet users. EPIC recommended the Commission desist from collecting personal information, adopt robust privacy safeguards, avoid use of Deep Packet Inspection, and require protections for electronic medical records. EPIC noted the long tradition of establishing privacy protections as new communications technologies emerged in the United States. EPIC previously advocated for the FCC to require strong privacy safeguards for telephone customers' personal information, and protect wireless subscribers from telemarketing.
