[PCAdvisor] EU Internet survey finds widespread blocking, fueling net neutrality issue
A European Commission survey of 28,000 Internet users [...] found that 41 percent experience problems watching video on a mobile device and 37 percent on a fixed Internet connection. Other services with which users experienced problems include music streaming, playing online games and voice over IP.
The news comes as the debate over a new E.U. "net neutrality" law continues. [...]
[...] digital rights activists have argued that the proposed new law does [not guarantee an open internet]. "At the same time as proposing text which will undermine net neutrality in Europe, Commissioner Kroes is energetically claiming that she supports it. Anyone not familiar with the file would be mistaken for believing her," said Joe McNamee from EDRi (a European digital rights group).
