Net Neutrality: Israel Regulated Mobile in 2011, Fixed in 2014

Net Neutrality | Israel Technology Law Blog: "Except … Israel already has a net neutrality law!

 In 2011, the Knesset passed a bill that imposed net neutrality obligations on mobile cellular providers as well as on distributors and support providers for mobile cellular telephones.

The law prohibited the “limitation or blocking” of (a) any “service or application available through the internet”, (b) features available on any mobile phone or (c) the ability to use any public cellular network. The law made an exception for reasonable network management, and made some other interesting exceptions that seem to be geared towards particular markets in Israel. That law was part of a general multi-pronged effort to increase competition in the Israeli cellular market." 'via Blog this'
