Letter: Is my internet safe?
letter to the editor 2

Yesterday, March 29, 2017, our U.S. Congress has voted to repeal privacy internet consumer protections that were approved by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and were imposed on internet service providers.

What does this mean to me, to my family, and to all of you? It allows broadband companies to both use and sell your private information about your health, finances and even sensitive information about our children — all without your consent.

So, when you’re doing an internet search, all that information is now for sale. Here is my question for my congress representatives: Senator Perdue, Senator Isakson, Congressman Rob Woodall: how does removing my privacy protection keep me safer? More secure? And protect my right for privacy?
