Charter Communications has delayed its plans to start sharing information with NebuAd about broadband subscribers' Web activity. The Internet service provider, which provides broadband to around 2.8 million subscribers, previously said it would begin working with behavioral targeting company NebuAd on a trial basis by no later than June 15. But St. Louis-based Charter Communications, currently under pressure from privacy advocates as well as Congress, has not yet started the tests. The company has not yet set a new date by which it will begin the program. A Charter spokesperson attributed the delay to technology issues. "It will happen when we're technologically ready," the spokesperson said.
