Regulator finds Telekom's StreamOn violates net neutrality

Tuesday 10 October 2017 | 11:27 CET | News
German consumer group Vzbv has criticised a decision by the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) not to ban zero-rating data tariffs, despite concluding that Deutsche Telekom's StreamOn tariff option violates net neutrality regulations on several grounds. The BNetzA has decided that zero-rated data tariffs can still be offered with several amendments, including treating video and audio streaming data rates equally and allowing customers to benefit from 'Roam like at Home' when travelling within the EU.
