T-Mobile looks to force change in net neutrality law through courts

Friday 30 December 2016 | 15:30 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
The ACM has forbidden T-Mobile's 'Datavrije Muziek' offer, but the service is still available while T-Mobile pursues a court appeal. The regulator thinks the offer of zero-rated data for music streaming is a violation of net neutrality. However, the operator claims that EU rules leave room for zero-rating. The court in Rotterdam has been asked to give an opinion, in an accelerated procedure. The ACM had told T-Mobile to stop the service by 10 January 2017, but it's not yet known when the court will hear the case.
