US Congress votes for ISPs to be able to sell customers info and browsing history

The US House of Representatives has voted on whether the privacy rules imposed by the Federal Communications Commission on Internet service providers should go into effect. Such a resolution, if signed by the US President Donald Trump, will mean that ISPs and mobile data carriers will be able to sell or share its customers Web browsing history and other private information to advertisers and other third parties without having to ask those customers for permission. It would also mean that the FCC will, in the future, likely not be. able to issue new rules for protecting the privacy of consumers.
