Federal Network Agency prohibits parts of Telekom’s “StreamOn” service

The German Federal Network Agency forbid certain aspects of the optional service “StreamOn” for their mobile phone contracts in order to enforce that consumers could make use of the “roam-like-at-home” principle. Currently, the data volume used by StreamOn in EU countries was divided from the overall volume included in the phone contract. According to the Federal Network Agency, this was violating the EU rules on roaming and net neutrality.
