I find it hard to believe how much of an idiot this youtuber is.

"ISPs give money to republicans." Called it bribes many times in his video. Can someone please show me the proof of this because he didn't provide any? I think he was talking out of his ass like usual because corporations are banned from giving donations to candidates so I don't think this happened. If it did, I would be very surprised that there's a record of it where he was able to acquire it.

"They want to take sensitive information like Healthcare information, social security number, web browsing history, they want to take that and they want to sell it to 3rd parties." WTF?!?! How the hell does my ISP have my healthcare information and social security number? Why don't they also want to sell my sex live and details of what I ate for dinner last night too? Idiot!

The ISPs do have browsing history but repealing the bill doesn't change anything. The Telecommunications act of 1934 covers the privacy and that is still in effect. The old act was created during a time when the internet didn't exist so the bill sought to clarify the privacy for internet providers. But that was just to make it more clear not that it now allows them to sell information without your consent.

Talking about consent, you have already provided your consent just by signing up for their service. All the major companies already disclose that they share this information and, if you don't like that, you can terminate your service.

'T-Mobile says it uses and shares "a de-identified profile of your web-browsing or application use activity"; AT&T says "we also learn about the pages you visit" and make use of that information for advertising; Sprint says it stores "web sites you have visited, applications purchased, [and] applications downloaded or used" for advertising; and Verizon has a program that customizes ads based on "your visits over time to different non-Verizon websites."'

If you are that concerned about your browsing history, you can hide it by using a VPN tunneling service or applications like Orbot which will encrypt your data and send those packets bouncing around random computers all around the world.

As an FYI, this bill was passed by congress (both the house and senate) and if the President didn't sign it, it would have been repealed anyway. The President is under no obligation to sign bills for them to become law. The President may sign the bill at any time after its deliverance. If it sits unsigned for more than the 10-day period, it becomes law regardless of his signature or not.
