Telenor's Netflix deal raises net neutrality fears - report

Monday 10 March 2014 | 12:54 CET | News

Telenor Norway has signed an agreement with Netflix, filtermagasin.no reported on its website, citing business daily Dagens Naeringsliv. Jorn Bremtun, a senior communications advisor at Telenor, told Filter this was clearly a commercial agreement, but the two sides had reasons not to publicise details that might affect dealings with other players.

Filtermagasin said relations between the two had been strained since the US company arrived in Norway in autumn 2012, as its streaming service stretched Telenor's capacity. The Norwegian operator wanted Netflix to rent space on its servers, said filtermagasin. Netflix refused, and there were fears about a breach of net neutrality if cash-rich players were able to purchase priority access.

Telenor declined to give Dagens Naeringsliv any comment as to whether Netflix had agreed to start paying it, said filtermagasin. Bremtun denied any breach of the guidelines on net neutrality.
