LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Your internet service provider will have to start asking permission before sharing more of your information.
The Federal Communications Commission voted 3-2 to approve new broadband privacy rules. The rules will force internet service providers like Comcast and Verizon to ask customers for permission before using or sharing their data.
Cable and phone companies say the new rules are unfairly strict, and could hurt their chances to grow revenue from their own advertising businesses.
