[V3.Co.Uk] Chile becomes first net neutrality nation

Posted on

Chile has become the first nation to officially put net neutrality principles into law. In a vote by the Chilean legislature, the new law won a near unanimous vote, according to local media.

The amount of support for the bill was surprising, but Chile is looking to expand its technological infrastructure. Around half of the population use the internet on a regular basis, and broadband speeds in metropolitan centres are around 2Mbit/s.
