Comcast understands the value of privacy, might charge for it

Comcast is deliberating on asking customer to pay for privacy. Comcast defended a pay-for-privacy pricing structure in a letter to the Federal Communications Commission. AT&T already offer a service called “Internet Preferences” that provides lower monthly rates to customers in Austin, Texas and Kansas City who allow AT&T to track their web history and other behavioral data that can then be used by advertisers. Users who opt-out of “Internet Preferences,” which DSLReports calls a “deep packet inspection program that tracks your browsing behavior around the internet—down to the second,” face a $30 premium on their monthly bill.
