ACM drops plans for internet speed test, to work with Berec

Wednesday 7 December 2016 | 15:44 CET | News
Dutch regulator ACM has dropped plans to develop its own system for measuring internet quality. It will work instead with the EU regulators' assembly Berec, which plans to develop a system as part of the new net neutrality rules. A spokesman for the ACM said Berec expects to start a consultation in Q1 2017 on the criteria for a measurement system. The EU regulation on net neutrality requires greater transparency from ISPs on the quality of their services, including providing information on the minimum, most often available, maximum and advertised download and upload speeds.
