Update: 22 November 2018 | 17:23 CET
A court in Cologne has upheld the German regulator's decision that Deutsche Telekom's StreamOn offer of zero-rated data for certain services violates net neutrality rules. In particular, Telekom should not throttle the speed for streaming, and the zero-rated data should be available also when roaming in the EU, the administrative court said.
