Mexican 'net neutrality' rules to come into force in September

Tuesday 6 July 2021 | 12:11 CET | News
A plenary session of Mexico's Federal Telecommunications Institute (IFT) has approved a new set of guidelines requiring operators to ensure "non-discrimination of internet traffic, as well as the quality, capacity and speed of the service contracted by the user". The newly-approved guidelines for net neutrality must be adopted by the country's ISPs within 60 days of their publication in Mexico's Official Gazette, meaning operators will in theory be prevented from reducing the download speed of streaming platforms, social networks and search engines starting from 03 September.
