The European Commission (EC) announced today that it would begin a period of public consultation on the subject of internet neutrality.
The Commission is open to input from all interested public and private parties and hopes to receive feedback in particular on the subjects of internet traffic management, transparency, consumers switching providers, and operator network interconnection issues. The EC plans to combine the information it receives from this open comment period with the recent findings of the Body of European Regulators of European Communications (BEREC) report to create practical recommendations to preserve European net neutrality.
