3 October 2017 - In March, more than 31 European Community Networks (CNs) wrote an open letter to EU policy-makers, stressing the need for an adaptation of the European legal framework aimed at helping these citizen-driven initiatives flourish, thus supporting alternative, democratic and sustainable ways to meet the goals of broadband policies. But rather than opening the door to a much-needed diversification of the telecom ecosystem, European governments only seek to reinforce the dominant positions of incumbent players. As the EU gets closer to a deal over the future of European telecom regulation, the EU Parliament must resist the pressure and reaffirm its commitment to the public interest.
In a joint letter, FDN Federation, with 72 other civil society organisations from the five continents, calls on the European Telecom Regulators to uphold net neutrality in their current negotiations about the future of the Internet in Europe.
BEREC, the European Telecoms Regulation organization, is about to produce recommendations in order to interpret the ambiguous Net Neutrality European Parliament's law last voted in october. BEREC is aiming to facilitate its application in Europe members states.
