Irish Minister welcomes EU net neutrality decision

Thursday 29 October 2015 | 22:09 CET | News
Irish Communications Minister Alex White has welcomed the EU decision to enshrine the principles of net neutrality into European law. He said that the move would help preserve freedom of expression on the internet. ISPs will be obliged to treat all traffic equally with no blocking or throttling of online content, applications and services. Minister White added that this would help ensure that all Europeans have access to an open internet where they are free to use their favourite web services no matter how they subscribe.
