EU to water down net neutrality rules | EurActiv: "EU lawmakers voted in April for strict net neutrality rules that barred telecoms operators like Orange and Telefonica from prioritising some internet traffic over others.
But the latest draft of the [Council] reform proposal shows that member states are leaning towards a looser approach which only bars internet service providers from applying traffic management measures which "block, slow down, alter, degrade or discriminate against specific content."
It does not define net neutrality or so-called "specialised services," which would have specified the types of content that operators could prioritise over others."
