GSMA Warns Dutch Net Neutrality Law in Conflict with EU Regulation
The GSMA has serious concerns about the revised Dutch Net Neutrality Law, which has been adopted today by the Dutch Senate.
The GSMA stresses that the new law will be incompatible with the EU Open Internet Regulation, in force from November 2015, putting the development of the EU Digital Single Market at risk. Moreover, the implementation of the revised law will harm consumers by stifling innovation and limiting the choice of services available to Dutch citizens.
After long debate, the EU established solid open internet standards across the Union, which will be at the core of enabling enhanced consumer and business services like e-healthcare, connected cars and superfast broadband. Consistent and balanced rules will ensure that Europe does not miss out on vital opportunities for innovation, social development and economic growth.
“We are greatly disappointed with the outcome of today’s vote. We believe that the Dutch Net Neutrality law goes far beyond the intent of the EU Regulation. We therefore call on the European Commission to ensure the harmonised implementation of Europe’s Open Internet rules,” said Afke Schaart, GSMA’s Vice President Europe.
