ANA Requests Extension of Time for Comments on the FCC’s CPNI NPRM

April 12, 2016

Today, ANA submitted a letter to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requesting an extension of time to submit comments regarding the new Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on privacy guidelines for broadband Internet Service Providers (ISPs). This NPRM contains numerous proposed requirements with potentially complex impacts regarding the privacy of collected and user data. There are more than 500 questions raised in the NPRM, but the timetable for the filing of initial comments is limited to a mere 57 days from the release of the Notice. For groups like ANA with an extremely broad and diverse membership, being able to receive full and thoughtful input and then to respond to the NPRM’s questions will take more time than has been granted.

ANA is currently in the process of formulating a response to the NPRM that reflects the concerns of all of our members. We strongly encourage our members to reach out to our Government Relations office to provide their feedback as this new rulemaking will have wide-reaching impacts and could affect virtually every type of company in our membership.
