[TheInquirer] Europe should adopt the French net neutrality stance

La Quadrature du Net has welcomed the publishing of a cross party report that it said could serve as a benchmark for wider reaching European rules.

The group has published its own translation of the report, which calls for the preservation of the Internet's universality and would preserve end users' "fundamental freedoms".

"The report reveals a deep understanding of the technical, social, economic and political realities of the Internet, and of the huge importance of preserving its universality. The rapporteurs stress the importance of protecting Net neutrality, which is the guarantee of online freedom, refusing to sacrifice it in the name of telecoms operators' economic interest", said Jérémie Zimmerman, co-founder and spokesperson for La Quadrature du Net.
