US: Congress repeals the FCC’s Broadband Privacy Order

On 3 April 2017, President Trump signed into law a Congressional Joint Resolution (‘the Joint Resolution’) revoking broadband and voice privacy rules set forth in a November 2016 order1 (‘the Broadband Privacy Order’) by the Federal Communications Commission (‘FCC’). John Heitmann and Jennifer R. Wainwright, Chair and Associate in the Communications Practice Group at Kelley Drye & Warren LLP respectively, discuss what will be the actual impact of the repeal on the status quo with respect to both broadband internet access service (‘BIAS’) providers and traditional voice providers, as well as the effects it will have on privacy enforcement by other players, including the Federal Trade Commission (‘FTC’) and state attorneys general.
