Netherlands to bring net neutrality law in line with EU

Monday 28 December 2015 | 18:29 CET | News
The Dutch ministry of economic affairs has sent to parliament its proposed amendment of the net neutrality legislation. The net neutrality section of the Telecommunications Law will be dropped in favour of the definition approved in the EU's Telecom Single Market legislation passed in November. The new rules are expected to take effect 30 April 2016.
