EDRi and 72 other NGOs send letter to EU regulators on net neutrality - EDRi: "In this important letter, 73 NGOs from around the world ask the EU Regulators to establish strong guidelines for net neutrality in Europe. In order to respect the Regulation’s stated aim of ensuring “the continued functioning of the internet ecosystem as an engine of innovation”, we urge BEREC to adopt guidelines give real meaning to this goal, including:
Careful consideration of so-called “Specialised Services”;
The reaffirmation that zero rating is prohibited under the regulation; and
Strictly non-discriminatory traffic management and a clear statement opposing intrusive traffic management that would restrict internet users’ privacy.
In order to fix some of the ambiguities of the EU net neutrality regulation, on 31 March EDRi and the SaveTheInternet coalition partners launched a consultation to give citizens more time to tell the regulators what they think about the open internet in Europe." 'via Blog this'
