La Quadrature du Net publishes its non-answer to the EU body of telecoms regulators' (BEREC) consultation on "specific aspects of transparency, trafic management and switching in an open Internet". It is not time for yet-another consultation on the EU Commission's failed "wait-and-see" policy aimed at letting telecom operators take control of the Internet by discriminating communications. The only way to protect a free Internet as well as freedoms and innovation online is to clearly enact and protect Net Neutrality in EU law.
All elements are on the table now:
The findings of Respect My Net are confirmed by BEREC's own study: Telecoms operators all around the EU restrict their users' communication, breaking the fundamental principles of the free and open internet while restricting freedoms online and innovation.
There is clear evidence that national regulators do not have the power to investigate and sanction such restrictions. The so-called "transparency" provisions of the Telecoms Package won't change anything.
