Today the FCC announced proposed fines against T-Mobile, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint for selling customers’ location information. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said: “This FCC will not tolerate phone companies putting Americans’ privacy at risk.” The companies are given an an opportunity to respond to the FCC before the Commission makes a final decision.
[ed: some pundits note that the amounts, when divided amoung the 4 companies, amount to little more than a slap on the wrist. All 4 companies have appealed the proposed ruling/fine and as of Sept, 2020, have not paid fines that are yet to be finalized by the FCC]
