Comcast says it will not sell customer browsing histories
Under the law, which would have been enacted at the end of 2017, ISPs were also required to strengthen protections against hackers and security breaches. Over the weekend, Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon said they wouldn't sell individual browsing history and further clarified their privacy policies.
The FCC rule, which hadn't yet taken effect, set restrictions on broadband providers such as AT&T Inc. and Comcast Corp. that fall under the agency's jurisdiction.
"In truth, companies that collect and use the most customer information on the internet are not the (internet service providers) but other internet companies, including operating system providers, web browsers, search engines, and social media platforms".
Of course given that the new resolution means that they don't need your permission, these ISPs could very well change their mind in the future for all we know, but we guess USA internet users can rest assured that their privacy is safe, for now.

A new bill passed in the House is opening the doors for internet providers to put users' information and browsing history up for sale.
Under the rules, internet providers would have needed to obtain consumer consent before using precise geolocation, financial information, health information, children's information and web browsing history for advertising and marketing. One allows marketers to access "de-identified information to determine which customers fit into groups that advertisers are trying to reach" while the other "provides aggregate insights that might be useful for advertisers and other businesses". According to tech experts, self-regulation may not protect consumer privacy at all.
The ruling side of the Republicans sitting in the U.S. Congress managed to pass the bill only recently despite a very strong opposition.
"We had the same protections in place the day before the Congressional resolution was passed, and we will have the same protections the day after" President Trump signs it into law, AT&T Senior EVP Bob Quinnwrote on the company's public-policy blog.
Trade group USTelecom Chief Executive Jonathan Spalter in a statement praised Trump for "stopping rules that would have created a confusing and conflicting consumer privacy framework".
