Verizon Wants FCC to Ban States From Protecting Your Privacy

From DSL Reports, it seems Verizon is trying to convince the FCC to ban states from enacting laws protecting consumer privacy.

The company says allowing states to regulate its own broadband would be “a recipe for disaster” and “impose inconsistent burdens” on service.

“States and localities have given strong indications that they are prepared to take a similar approach to net neutrality laws if they are dissatisfied with the result of the Restoring Internet Freedom proceeding,” complains Verizon, again ignoring that its lawsuits are the reason that’s happening.
