Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai is planning to delay the implementation of the agency’s broadband privacy rules, Reuters reports. FCC spokesman Mark Wigfield said Pai believes all companies in the "online space should be subject to the same rules, and the federal government should not favor one set of companies over another." The move to delay implementation of the data security rules could come as soon as March 2. Analysts consider a temporary stay as the first step toward permanently blocking the rules. Democrats continued to voice their opposition of the push to repeal the contested rules. “Chairman Pai is determined to take action that leaves consumers without a cop on the beat protecting their personal information from misuse by their broadband service provider," said Democratic FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn.
