EU Wants To Enshrine Network Neutrality In Law

Bismillah writes “Following the example of the Dutch, who enacted laws supporting network neutrality, the European Union is now looking at doing the same. They are pushing for an end to the throttling and blocking of services such as Skype and Whatsapp by providers hoping to drive users to their own competing services. The EU also wants a service transparency requirement for ISPs, so people know what they’re buying — like minimum speed. It’ll be interesting to see how this pans out.”
