The net neutrality seems German Economics Minister Philipp Rösler, but to be more important than previously thought .

The ministry spokesman said: “Regardless of the current debate on the model of telecom should therefore be created for future cases a legal framework. Network operators may own content or applications of some third party (paid) generally not preferred convey. “The Federal Network Agency to take action for violations.

Basically, as an advance is welcome, of course, even if he is driven “regardless of the current debate on the model of the Telekom”. I think the discussion is about the throttling Telekom plans anyway completely covered and is considered in many places simply wrong. But that’s another topic.

The regulation will probably unfortunately can not be too quickly to come into force, it has the usual way on the consent of the Bundesrat and Bundestag passed. This can draw is known, before this year’s election is likely to happen, therefore not much.
