[V3.co.uk] EU to decide extent of internet freedom Tuesday

The European Union (EU) is set to decide tomorrow whether it will consider protecting net neutrality.

The debate revolves around whether telecoms firms should be allowed intentionally to speed up or slow down traffic based on the service or application being used. [...]

LQDN has urged Europeans to call on their MEPs to preserve net neutrality. So far more than 70 non-governmental organisations from 15 member states have signed up to the agenda.

"Citizens from all member states have a few hours left to call all the members of the European Parliament delegation in the conciliation committee," said LQDN this morning.
