Swedish postal and telecoms regulator PTS said it has begun looking into zero-rated internet services from Telia and 3 Sweden. This is partly because of new European Union rules on network neutrality. PTS said it is not expressly forbidden to provide services such as music or social media without deducting the data used from the kitty in the customer's subscription.
