ISPA responds to EU net neutrality vote

Wednesday 28 October 2015 | 20:58 CET | News
The UK's Internet Services Providers' Association (ISPA) has responded to the EU's net neutrality vote. In a statement, the ISPA said that it had long supported the idea of a free and open internet, and that the UK has generally had a less emotive debate about 'net neutrality' than other nations. It called on the UK Government to adopt an approach that allows ISPs to be flexible, respond to user demands and freely provide services such as parental controls.
