New glitch in telecoms talks – zero rating

New glitch in telecoms talks – POLITICO: "The Netherlands and Slovenia have banned it, for example, but the practice is still common elsewhere, including Germany, where Deutsche Telekom has a music streaming deal with Spotify.

 Zero rating was never mentioned in any draft, but The Netherlands is now vocally seeking a ban, despite the Council’s previous objections, two sources involved in the negotiations told POLITICO.

“We would rather have no package than a bad package,” warned Marietje Schaake, a Dutch MEP from the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe. “If we build the digital single market on a weak telecoms single market, we are effectively shooting ourselves in the foot.”" 'via Blog this'
