Default Verizon wants to stop states protecting consumer privacy

Wagging the watchdog's tail

Showing the mood of the US telcos, Verizon sent a letter and white paper to the FCC, demanding that the regulator step in to stop States regulating against telco’s snooping on citizens.

"The FCC has ample authority to pre-empt state efforts to protect consumer privacy, and should act to prevent states from doing so. Allowing every State and locality to chart its own course for regulating broadband is a recipe for disaster. It would impose localized and likely inconsistent burdens on an inherently interstate service, would drive up costs, and would frustrate federal efforts to encourage investment and deployment by restoring the free market that long characterized internet access service," the letter demanded.
