BIPT closes Proximus net neutrality investigation without binding decision

Monday 28 May 2018 | 10:47 CET | News
Belgian operator Proximus' offer of zero-rated data for certain mobile apps may have violated the EU's net neutrality rules, according to a non-binding report published by the national regulator BIPT. Proximus has since withdrawn the offer from the market. The regulator said it was therefore not possible to assess the impact on market competition.
