German regulator questions Telekom's broadband caps

Monday 6 May 2013 | 15:25 CET | News
Jochen Homann, head of Germany's networks regulator Bundesnetzagentuur, said he has written to Deutsche Telekom to question the company's recent introduction of data caps on its fixed broadband plans. Speaking in Bonn on 06 May, Homann said he had given the company until mid-May to respond, Reuters reports. The regulator wants to make sure Telekom is meeting the aims of net neutrality as well as providing customers with enough information on the change in policy and amount of data available, including for existing customers who may change plan and face the new caps.
