Finnish mobile operators ask to opt out of free EU-roaming rules due to #netneutrality Yle Uutiset |

Finnish mobile network operators ask to opt out of free EU-roaming rules | Yle Uutiset | "Finnish operators say there are far more mobile customers from Finland who travel around Europe and use the internet - as opposed to the other way around - making it a lopsided deal.

Another hurdle facing local operators is that subscribers in Finland are used to having unlimited, uncapped data, while operators in many other countries charge customers based on how much data is actually used, down to the megabyte.

Having access to unlimited data, subscribers from Finland have become accustomed to using a lot of it." 'via Blog this'

Having read the full article, I found no relation neither a sepecific reference, among roaming and Net Neutrality...
Having higher data allowances in Finland makes potentially more costly the implementation of RLAH (higher wholesale costs for Finnish operators abroad with no revenue impact). So this is the reason for asking to opt out.
