Netnod responds to EU Commission Public Consultation related to Net Neutrality

Read the full statement on Netnod's response to the Public Consultation related to Net Neutrality.

Netnod has submitted a response to the Public Consultation on specific aspects of transparency, traffic management and switching in an Open Internet that DG Communications Networks, Content and Technology use for information gathering for the Commission’s planned recommendations that commissioner Kroes announced on May 29 2012.

In summary, Netnod does believe further work is required to clarify the use of the term 'Internet Access'. Netnod does however urge caution since Netnod does not agree with some conclusions. This as Netnod does believe some of the concepts described, related to congestion control and Quality of Service, are not applicable in a packet based network.
