Network Neutrality: Challenges and Responses in the EU and in the US
05/05/2015 @ 13:00 - 17:00
This Digital Forum seminar tackles the topic of net neutrality, an important and contentious part of the Telecoms Single Market (TSM) package and includes issues around traffic management, blocking or throttling, specialized services, transparency and quality of service. Opinion differs on all aspects of net neutrality – even on its definition.
The Federal Communications Commission decision in the U.S. maintains operators’ freedom to offer specialised services. It also allows for commercial agreements in the field of Internet access that go beyond speed and volume, such as ‘zero-rating’ tariffs, subject to safeguards by the regulator. In Europe, key aspects of net neutrality regulation remain controversial. This seminar will compare the approach adopted in the U.S. with the current debate in Europe.
Participation in this event is exceptionally free of charge. A sandwich lunch will be provided from 13:00 onwards.
