Citizens in Europe have less than six weeks left to participate in a consultation which will define the rules of the future for keeping the Internet open. The BEREC guidelines are intended to provide a frame for regulators to implement Net Neutrality across Europe. The guidelines include zero-rating assessment criteria, traffic management practices, specialised services and how transparent companies need to be about their practices.
The guidelines in question are published only in English, and the process to submit comments is subject to a series of formalities, but French advocacy group La Quadrature du Net has uploaded them in a collaborative platform, in order to enable participation, where you can see all versions.
This Summer will be crucial to defining how Net Neutrality will be applied in Europe, and the decisions of EU regulators will have global ramifications too. The only way for the public interest to prevail is for you to participate.
