EDRi critics the EU approach on net neutrality

A few weeks ago, the European Parliament had a strong position on net neutrality after adopting its first reading of the Telecoms Single Market Regulation in April. Meanwhile, the Council does not have an agreed position on the subject. Also, since the beginning of November, the new European Commission has taken office, with “better regulation” at the centre of its stated priorities. However, despite the efforts of the Parliament to improve the previous Commission's net neutrality proposals, there are persistent rumours that the new Commission may withdraw it.

EDRi has re-launched their campaign platform savetheinternet.eu and they ask everyone to play their part. They also wrote to the Council of the EU and issued a press release.
