Background: Today, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) announced a request for comment and input on advancing consumer privacy and innovation.
The following statement can be attributed to Jonathan Spalter, President & CEO, USTelecom:
“USTelecom appreciates this effort by NTIA to advance the privacy conversation. Our members understand the success of any digital business depends on consumer trust. Several members of Congress have also introduced – or plan to introduce – privacy legislation. Taken together, we hope these initiatives will lay the groundwork for a single, national framework with strong consumer protections and flexibility for a competitive and innovative marketplace. What we need most is clear and consistent privacy rules that apply equally to all companies that interact with consumers through the internet.
