Telecomproviders advocate less net neutrality




Four organizations from telecom providers, including the GSM Association and Cable Europe, ask the European Commission to mitigate the net neutrality. Europe is currently debating on the introduction of the European net neutrality.

Along with Make The NetWork and ETNO have the Cable Europe and the GSM Association has written to the European Union in which they advocate a weaker net neutrality. “It’s not efficient or for the benefit of users and all traffic is treated equally,” the organizations in the letter, which is unclear to which EU body it is precisely targeted. “And that’s never been the case.”

Last year, the European Parliament voted for net neutrality, but according parliamentarians D66 and Green Left in the European version of net neutrality less radical than the Dutch. Providers may offer namely the European proposal called “specialized network” that require a guaranteed network quality; critics say that is contrary to the principle of net neutrality. The European version of net neutrality may have consequences for the Dutch net neutrality.

The providers want so that European net neutrality is further weakened. Should the Commission decide that the net neutrality should indeed be reduced further, the European Commission should first agree.
