The Federal Communications Commission has released a fact sheet outlining a revised proposal for broadband privacy rules. The revised rules will require ISPs to obtain consumers consent only for use of "sensitive" information. The original proposal offered privacy protections for all consumer data. ISPs will also be permitted to charge higher prices for basic privacy protections, subject to FCC review. EPIC has said that the FCC should go further to safeguard consumer privacy. The Commission plans to vote on the proposal on October 27th.
